Hello there !

My problems is that I burned a lot of DVDs on DVD-R but suddenly it only works with CD-R.
I have a DVD RW Dual, Double layer. My burning programs is ImgBurn and Ashampoo 6.0.
Can someone help me ?

Re-install the burning programs. If you have a cleaner cd for the laser run it. If these don't help then I suspect that your drive is in a bad shape.

Indeed.. How old is the drive, and how much DVD burning usage has it seen?

Hi Battis...

Is recording enabled on the drive? I've seen some software that will disable recording on one drive in a two optical drive system. Open My Computer and right click on the drive in question...choose "Properties". Under the "Recording" tab, is the "Enable cd recording on this drive" checkbox selected?
