I have a dell xps400 with an HL-DT-ST DVDRW DL burner. I am using Roxio Creator IO Dell edition, that came with the computer when i purchased it new 18 months ago.
It is a 3.2 gig with 2 gig ram. Lots of hard drive space avilable.
Prviously I have been able to use Roxio to create data discs on Verbatim DVD+R 4.7 discs.
Today when I started the Roxio RecordNow data program it would not recognize the DVD_R discs. I tried my 650meg cd recordable discs and they work fine.
I inserted a previously recorded disc in the burner and it will not play. I inserted the same disc in the dvd drive and it plays just fine.
I had not used the dvd burner for quite some time so I am not sure how long it has been out of comission.
I Checked the device manage for this drive and it says it is working properly.
