Hello guys
I hope i picked the right forum for this question,i have a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111D in my system which is running on XP home,when i put a DVD-R 4.7 into the drive it read as 0 full and 0 empty and i cannot burn to these discs,i have tried various discs in case the first few were faulty but to no avail,i can burn onto 700mb CD's with no problem,and i can play CD's and DVD's from that drive again with no problems,but when i put a blank DVD in it reads as full and wont allow me to burn or copy to it,I have started using Movie Maker to convert some old 8mm tapes and can save the finished product to my PC,but i need to get them onto disk so i can play them through a DVD player on TV.
Any help would be appreciated

Sometimes it is just the make of disk that won't accept a burn. Try a different brand of DVD. You may be able to swap a couple with friends.
