    I've never burned a data disc or DVD, but I've burned music cd's.

    I'm trying to burn photos onto a cd, but my Sony DVD-RW/CD dual drive isn't getting detected.

    Please don't tell me it can't actually burn data discs...

    I have Windows XP on a Sony Vaio desktop with their first generation dual core processor models.

    Thanx
