Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I have an hl-dt-st rw dvd gcc-4240n and it won't burn a dvd. Am I missing something - is it a dvd burner? It seems to burn cds without an issue and will play a dvd with no problem. I put in a blank dvd and it won't recognize it.
That drive is actually made by LG for dell computers its a COMBO-DRIVE CDRW / DVD READER ONLY Thats why it will not see a dvd blank anyway here are the specs .

Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
