Check that the burner is finalizing the discs. This can be set in Roxio or in the optical drive properties. In Windows 7, right click on the optical drive, choose Properties, then the Recording tab. Then the Global settings lets you choose to finalize the disc on eject. Try a different brand of DVD+R and check that the other players support DVD+R discs. (I know some DVD players only support DVD-R.)
2.) Update your CD/DVD burner drives. This can be done by going to the manufacturers website and checking for updates. (Ex: If you purchased your computer from Dell and it came with a built in burner, you'd check Dell.com for updates.)
3.) Update the PX Engine. This is Roxio software that communicates with the CD/DVD burner drives.
You did not state either the type of computer or the type of cd/dvd drive. It could be either an IDE-ATA or
and S-ATA, so I am going to guess that you are removing the old CD on a PC and installing the new cd/DVD. If an IDE-ATA (That is the one with a whole lot of pins that a ribbon cable attaches too) thge look on the back to make sure that it is either set to cable select or Master. After hooking the wires and screws ,just like the old CD had attached,close the case and start the computer.
At this point it would act exactly like a CD burner. You must install DVD burner software not to use it as a DVD player /burner. Install your ROXIO and you should be ready to go. If I missed anything or misunderstood just let me know. Good luck.
