    what model computer do u have and what version of windows do u have? has the dvd drive ever recognized dvds? if not it may not have the proper codec to do so. if it did in the past than the drive may need to be replaced. hope this helps u.

    It's a HP 1130 running Win XP.. I have been making DVDs for a long time but it now keeps responding with "insert a disk into drive E" even though one in there. That drive will open a CD and the DVDs I had made earlier run everywhere but not on this drive. Your first response mentioned replacing it. I'm leaning that way now.


    Thanks So Much
