Check to see if the E drive is present in the computer if not then go to Windows Vista help and follow the instructions see http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems. You can look for additional solutions to Vista program upgrade problems, I had the same problem.

Is there a way I can finalize a DVD-RW so I can show films burned onto the DVD-RW?


Hi,

You have not pointed out what type of program are you using for DVD authoring. The option to finalize the disc is usually provided when you start burning.

I have an alternate solution for you which is easier. You can use the Windows DVD maker available in Vista Home Premium. This way you will not have to manually finalize the disc; it will take care of it itself.

Remember to install codecs such as k-lite basic coded pack for trouble free work with different formats. Then run DVD maker from the start menu. A tutorial can be accessed here.

Note that DVDs created by DVD maker can be played on most DVD players and on computer as well.

You *DO* have a "boot-disk".

Put the original Microsoft Vista Home Premium DVD-ROM into your drive, and tell the computer to boot from the CD/DVD drive.

Dvd/CD RW+- not recognizing Dvd disk. CD is fine. Gateway GM5407E only DH16W1P161C on player. Vista Premium 32 OS


open the control panel and click on the system folder, then the hardware tab, then the device manager (you are looking for the cd/dvd rom drives).
When you find it right click on it and check all the tabs to make sure everything is working properly.

Let me know how it turns out and we can take it further if we need too.
