Nero cannot burn DVD inserted in my LG GSA-H55N DVD-RAM rewriter

Have you tried other discs, or just that one? It might be that the disc you've inserted already has something written on it, and you can't burn a DVD-R twice. From the error message you're getting, that would be my guess.

It comes with nero but i don't understand it. and i also need to know that if i download a movie from the internet, how do i burn it onto a disk using this burner

you have to setup nero, insert a blank cd/dvd onto the writer. need to start startsmart, you should select the proper potion uou want to use like, music, video or just as data to write all at a same cd.

Now another window should come. then use "add" to add those files you want to burn. press next and burn.

This prosess should work. let me know if anything seems not working.

Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense

in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.

If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
