    Hello
    I have a little problem with a dvdrw.It's a Benq 1655 dvdrw.Up to yesterday it was all fine.I was burning dvd and it was fine.Since yesterday,I installed a new mouse.(logitech)
    I tried also a dvdr made in China and I couldn't burn with nero or burn for free.I doubt that the problem could come from the mouse.I tried to burn a cd and it works fine.I tried a new dvdr(mitsubishi) and the burn button is grayed out.It isn't grayed out when I burn cd.
    Does anyone have any idea on what to do.Could my dvdrw be broken or is it software?
    Jean-Guy Roberge
    Thanks

    When DVD burners go bad many times they still burn CDs (2 different lasers).

    Go into Device Manager, find your burner, right click-> uninstall, then reboot. Hopefully that will fix things.

    Also note Burn4Free installs adware.

    Why does Burn4Free include NavHelper?
    Burn4Free has always been offered to the public at no charge.
    Development costs have been supported by the generous donations of program users.
    Although these contributions are greatly appreciated, they alone are insufficient to continue program development. Burn4Free now incorporates NavHelper as a sponsor to offset some of the program development costs.


    • Important Notes:
    Burn4Free includes adware: NavHelper and NavExcel Search Toolbar free software. "NavHelper and NavExcel Search Toolbar software resolve domain name errors and enable yout to search from anywhere on the web. The Search Toolbar also includes a free POPUP BLOCKER!"

    Adware (and spyware) software may record your surfing habits, deliver advertising, collect private information, or modify your system settings. Pay close attention to the End User License Agreement ("EULA") and installation options! We also, recommend you to run Windows Defender or other antispyware software after installation process.
