I have bought a new computer and it came with a DVD rom, I have an external DVD RW That hooks up to a USB port. I Have hooked it up and installed all software for it and It shows its hooked up (I can found it when I go to My computer & in Device manager) But it will not Burn or play anything. I have used the DVD Burner on another Computer So I know it works. If you could help me that would be great. Thanks

Hi momfor5...

Is recording enabled on the drive? Right click on the drive in My Computer and choose "Properties". Under the "Recording" tab, is the "Enable CD recording on this drive" check box selected?

Ok I have enable it. But it still is acting the same. It keeps saying that there is no disc in drive. It did ask me if I wanted to enable Sonic DLA. I did enable it.
