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 http://www.nero.com/ena/downloads-nero9-free.php

How to burn dvds



How to burn a DVD-Video Disc with Nero Burning ROM /> /> /> Alright, I know that many of you may say that there are plenty of DVD burning progs out there and that if I do a guide like this I should cover all of them. But I only got Nero and many users are asking me about how to burn a DVD-Video with Nero, so that's why Nero is the one for the guide.
This guide is supposed to be used by people that have created the compressed DVD files using DVD Shrink and now they don't know what to do with them or everyone that wants to see how to create a DVD-Video. Remember that for the DVD Decrypter guide you don't need Nero, as DVD Decrypter can burn the ISO file itself. Anyway before start reading this guide keep in mind that it is for use with DVD Shrink or other program that creates .IFO and .VOB files. Don't use it to burn files or mp3 in your DVD, for this you need to select a DVD-ISO disc.
Of course, Nero Burning ROM is a commercial program and we don't have it available for download. Instead you can get a trial version here.

/> /> First of all I make clear that I use version 6. If you have an older version that supports DVD (I think all the versions after 5.5.x.x) then the process is the same. Please make sure you start Nero Buring ROM I show here and NOT the Nero SmartStart. /> /> The new complication comes up. If you see a Wizard close it (there must be a button down right which says Close Wizard or something). Open the pull-down menu I show and select DVD.
NOTE: If there is no pull-down menu then your version does not support DVD.
/> /> Select DVD-Video (1) from the list. Then just make sure the settings (2) are the same as shown here. Then click on the Label tab. /> /> Here just put the label that you want your DVD to have. (It's the name that you see before your drive's letter every time you go to My Computer). After that click New. /> /> At the left of your screen you see the folders of the DVD we are going to burn. Notice the VIDEO_TS folder is red. Double click to open the VIDEO_TS folder. /> /> At the right of your screen you can see your hard drive. Browse to the folder where you have your DVD files (the files that DVD Shrink created). /> /> Select all the files. I repeat: ALL the files. /> /> Now drag and drop ALL the files you selected at the step before into the VIDEO_TS folder we opened before at your left.
IMPORTANT: People keep asking me that. Yes you put ALL the files DVD Shrink or other program created into the VIDEO_TS folder. The AUDIO_TS folder remains empty.
/> /> This is how Nero should look after all this. Note that the bat at the bottom should be all blue, or with just a little yellow where it finishes. Now click the burn icon that I show with the arrow. /> /> Here select just Write. Put the write speed for your media (for slower media like here, Nero reduces the speed from 4x to 2x, nothing to worry about) and finally click Burn!
Wait for it to finish and you will have a very nice DVD-Video disc!

DVD+RW Not recognized as a writable drive


There could be a few things going wrong here, firstly when you send a file using Windows poor inbuilt writing programme, i think you need to use a re writable disc, although i could be wrong, but thats worth a try. Also go to My computer, right click on your dvd drive and go to properties, then along the top row of tabs, the end one should say 'Recording', click on the tab and make sue that 'Enable CD recording on this drive' is ticked, and just below make sure that the dvd you use is showing in the drop down window. Finally if you still have trouble, my advice would be to use a dedicated programme for writing to cd and dvd for example Nero burning Rom or Nero 7 being the later version. In this nero you use your drive as a 'floppy type' drive, where you right click on file and send to and it writes straight to the disk and also enables you to change the file or delete, unlike windows programme.
