What are you trying to copy? Data? Music? Movie clips? The only thing I can think of is to make sure that what you're trying to copy isn't bigger than what the DVD can hold. That will definitely cause the problem you are describing.

If that's not the case, make sure you do in fact have a DVD in there instead of a CD. Also, make sure your program is set up to copy to DVD instead of CD. You might have hit an arrow and inadvertently set it to CD.

You might also want to try reading a DVD. Do you have any problems reading one?

Make sure also that there are no fingerprints on the disk you're copying to, and try it with three or four different disks.

Or try disconnecting your modem, then turning off your virus checker, and copying it again to see if the virus program is blocking something.

How do I burn a DVD?


Well assuming you have all the hardware and DVD's & depending on Operating System.. it is very simple. Using software of your choice for "Burning" You insert the DVD, add the files to the software, by selecting them. Once "Compiled" then one simply clicks "Burn" and the software will go & do it's thing, Then it will "Write" the data to the DVD and your done.
There are many good "Burners" Copy2DVD, CloneDVD, Nero, Alcohol120%, are all good programs.
If you have Vista or Win 7 they have "Native" DVD copying, "Burning" "Built In" meaning you can simply compile the files on the Drive and "Burn" without any other software.

LG MODEL NUMBER GSA-H42N 18X SUPERMULTI DVD BURNER NOT ABLE TO WRITE ON SONY DVD-RW DISC


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.
