Hello! I have bought my new dvd writer drive, but I have problem with writing dvd's on it, it can't open blank dvd's and write to them media, but it can only open already disks, thta have some files on them. I am a lil bit confused, plus I got another simple cd rom writer, connected to same ide cable, maybe i should disable it and leave only this new dvd rom driver, I have read help on my Windows xp Proffessional home center, and there was said, thta i must disable recording on dvd-ram drive, i did it, but now, when i try to open blank dvd disk, it says inccorrect operation, can any1 give me advice? My dvd wrier drive is Optiarc 7170A and i got those latest drives, plz give me some advise, I am totally confused :( Thx

HI , I have a cd writer and a dvd writer on the same ide cable and they both work fine. What kind of software are you using? Windows XP will not natively write to dvds if that is what you are trying to do ? You need software to do this . You may already know this and if so just disregard this .

Rectore: Have you tried a different brand of DVD blank disks in your new burner?
Sometimes, a burner will not recognise a certain brand of disk.
