Question about NEC MultiSpin ND-1100A (ND-1100A) DVD+RW Burner
Burning with a CD-R is not a problem for me. No issues whatsoever. However, inserting a DVD+R gets me nothing. The drive will read it as a DVD-ROM. When I load the DVD, it gives me the option of opening a recordable folder. When I try to send a file to the folder (via right click-send to E:) I get an error message: Unable to copy file with the options of retry, skip, cancel. If I try to send the files to a writable folder prior to inserting a DVD+R, the files show up in the E: as "waiting to be written." However, when I put the DVD+R into the drive, the files disappear and the recording session is no longer an option! This is extremely frustrating!! I pulled the drive out of the case and found this S/N: 34F12775111 I'm not sure what else to try at this point. Any ideas? I hope so! Thanks in advance!!
There could be a few things going wrong here, firstly when you send a file using Windows poor inbuilt writing programme, i think you need to use a re writable disc, although i could be wrong, but thats worth a try. Also go to My computer, right click on your dvd drive and go to properties, then along the top row of tabs, the end one should say 'Recording', click on the tab and make sue that 'Enable CD recording on this drive' is ticked, and just below make sure that the dvd you use is showing in the drop down window. Finally if you still have trouble, my advice would be to use a dedicated programme for writing to cd and dvd for example Nero burning Rom or Nero 7 being the later version. In this nero you use your drive as a 'floppy type' drive, where you right click on file and send to and it writes straight to the disk and also enables you to change the file or delete, unlike windows programme.
