Question about Acer Aspire (AST180-US340B) PC Desktop
I am a complete novice and I am having a problem with my CD burner (Vista Ultimate).
I can manage to burn CD's if I use a 'TX' Self recordable CD - but I cannot burn DVD's at all.
Is it that my computer (and it's quite new) only has a CD burner?
Is there a difference between a CD burner and a DVD burner and if so - what can I do to burn movies please?
I have tried Nero, ImgBurn and CD Burner XP...

Tips for a great answer:
• Do you have any third party CDDVD burning software?
• Are you able to burn DVD's using windows explorer?
First I would suggest that you try burning using another DVD and check if it works.
Try one or more of the following:
Verify that the DVD burner is connected properly to your computer and powered on, and that any necessary software drivers for the DVD burner are installed. You can check your hardware settings in the Device Manager by doing the following:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Hardware and Sound.
3. Click Device Manager.
• Make sure that the videos you're trying to burn are not corrupted. To see whether the videos you want to burn is corrupted, try playing or viewing them using Windows Media Player. If the files don't play using the Player, Windows DVD Maker cannot burn them.
• Choose a slower burning speed for your DVD burner by doing the following:
1. Return to the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, and then click Options.
2. In the DVD burner speed box, select Medium or Slow.
