DVD-RW not working!!!


i have a strange problem with my DVD-RW. i bought it about 6 months back and used it to burn DVDs only once but frequently burn CDs. Now whenever i try to burn a DVD (using nero) i always get an error no matter whatever i am trying to burn. i have tried updating the firmware and use different DVDs but have failed.

Is there a solution or should i replace mine? btw its an Emprex brand.

  1. If you are burning images, use UltraISO or another program to convert the image to .nrg.
  2. In every computer I owned, the CD or DVD drive is the first component to fail. Tough luck buddy. And what the hell is Emprex? Go get the $30 Lite-on drive from newegg.
