    Just a rookie at this please forgive me. I"m good on processing/ ram/ Hdd. I now have a DVD player and a DVD Burner. I Understand the basic levels of DVD discs, and I thought my DVD Wizard pro that I bought 2 years ago would take off and run, but it didn't. My burner is 8X16. Is the disc that came with it supposed to make it burn or do you have to go aftermarket like 1.5 years ago. I'm just lost. Please send me to the education I so desire.

    I found the box it came in. It's a internal Super Multi DVD/CD Rewriter GSA-4166B P/N 3890H-2038A Ver.A

    I am assuming that one of those pieces of software is for burning your files to your DVD rw. According to LG's website, that model comes with Nero Express and with Cyberlinks Authoring and Playback Software--PowerProducer Gold.

    First things first. What do you want to burn to DVD.

    Got it figured out, thanks for your help. My problem was with copying DVD's. I was of the understanding that you could legally make a back-up copy of you own DVD's legally, but evedently that is no longer the case. So, any answer to those type of questions are not allowed on this forum so I will consider this case closed. Thanks again for your help.
