Hi
I bought some dvd-r to copy some home movies and they will not work on my computer,although the comp knows they are in when i try to copy i just get an error message. I tried them on a friend's comp and they work fine. I got a dvd from my friend and it works fine. The one's I bought will not work on my comp, Im guessing some setting on my comp are not right, can anyone help.
thanks

Different brands of CD/DVD burners often don't like certain brands of blank discs for various technical reasons such as the type of dye used to make the discs or even the quality of the discs if they are not made by one of the top names in the business. Some makes of burner are really choosy about this, whilst other makes will often write to any blank disc you feed it. So it's not impossible for a disc that works on your friends PC to not work on yours, and vice versa. It's the burner that's being finicky about what brand of discs it likes, not the PC as such. Try a different brand, preferably from one of the big names like Sony, TDK or Kodak, all of which are high-quality.

I'm sure it's just a case of finding a brand of disc that works for you then sticking with that brand if possible in future.

that error means your medium (dvd-r's) are incompatible with your burner. you need to find compatible dvd-r's for your burner.
