I have an lg external super multi dvd rewriter (gp08lu10).. i tried burning a 4.7GB DVD-RW but it doesn't work.. the memory capacity shows 0 bytes but i inserted a 4.7GB DVD-RW (also it shows that...

CD/DVD drives will always show 0 bytes if there is no media present.
You will need extra software in order to burn DVD such as Roxio, Nero. I beleive the LG burners show come with software, you will need to install it in, and run it to burn DVDs.
Nero does offer a free version that will burn DVDs

Burning movies

Yes. Many burning apps (such as Nero) support the creation of Video-CDs, and most current DVD players support playing these Video-CDs.

U can use nero, first of all you must format de DVD-RW, so that it can be be rewritable. Then use it like a normar DVD-R disk. And every time you want to rewrite the DVD only make a quickformat and put your things on the DVD.

Problem on burning CDRW

run the nero drive speed first before burning in your files, if your cd in a RW or rewritable, just erase it and burn again the data's that you want.
