Won't burn DVD's after reinstalling Windows

Mitsumi DW 7801 TE DVD-RW quit burning dvd-r or -rw after I had to reinstall Windows. When I ran the Belarc Advisor it shows both of my drives to be cd-rom drives. I get an "Insert blank disk..." message when I insert a dvd disk and attempt to burn it or even read it to see what is on it. I have used Maxell DVD-R 4.7gb, up to 16x, 2 Hrs in SP mode and Memorex DVD-RW disk. I have windows XP on a Dell Pent 4, 638 RAM.Any suggestions or is it time to replace the drive? or the computer?

Did you install the right drivers for the drive? It happened to me in the past where my DVD burner would only burns regular CDR's.

How can i burn files to my verbatim DVD+R DL, with what software and how, i don't have any clue, please help me and give me instructions of how to successfully burn files to Disc. My DVD drive is SONY...

CDBurnerXP is a good, free disc burning program that can do what you need. Rather than try to duplicate the information here, I'll just say that help is here on their website that explains how to use the program. It's quite simple, though. You just drag-and-drop the files you want to burn to the program's layout window, and when you're done adding files you click the "burn" button.

I have an external teac dv-28e-n usb DVD writer device which does not recognise and burn DVD rewritablce discs.

I think that Teac DV-28e Is a CD/DVD-ROM only, and will not burn discs. Teac DW-28e is a CD RW/ DVD ROM unit, and will thus play and burn CDs, but will only play DVDs. Check your model numbers to confirm, and then consider exchanging units if you need to burn CDs.

Reads and writes cds,reads dvds but does not burn dvds,

This drive is normally supplied with a couple of Dells.
(because of compatibility) Inspiron 700m,710m

If you have another machine for testing?
check the disk for contents to see if the data burn happened,
this will explain a few things in your processes.

Uninstall/Reinstall the drive and reboot then try again.

Have you tried a full system reinstall yet?
Did it fix your problem?Please let me know thanks
