I came home today to burn a file I downloaded. It was a RAR file and I couldn't extract the file because I didn't have enough room on my PC so I was going to burn it to a DVD-R and then delete the RAR file and extract from the DVD-R. I tried it and it sat there at like 1% writing. Then I tried it with a DVD-RW which I had other files on. It wasn't working so I control+alt+deleted and tried to burn it again but the Drive light was still on and then it went off but the DVD would not come out. I held in the pwer button to shut of my computer.
Then I turned it back on and tried to burn it again but this time it would say "please insert a disc to write to" and when I would it would not recognize it (not even pop up message telling me to insert another one).
So I restarted my PC and still have the same problem. I inserted a CD and it read that. I also went to MY COMPUTER and right-clicked on the D drive and checked for updates on all of my Drives and it said there weren't any.
I inserted a Audio CD and it recognized it and then I tried a DVD and it said there wasn't anything inserted in the DRIVE!
Please help me, I am in a hurry.
THANX alot! Someone said they had a similiar problem on another forum I read and they said there windows ASPI.dll file was missing. How do I search for this?
EDIT: Also, I forgot to add that it just started and it had been working fine and we just got our computer updated with a DVD-+RW/CD-RW Burning Drive around February or so, so it shouldnt be shot! Also, the first thing I tried to burn was the RAR file and a message popped up saying that the file was bigger that 2 Gigs so it was going to have to be a UDF file or something and that it can only be read in Windows 98/.../XP, can't remember the exact stuff, but that I think it recognized the DVD then so something happened between then...
EDIT 2: Also, I checked in the Event Viewer as was told to do in another forum with a similiar problem and it has a lot of Error and warnings;
Under Application: Application Hang, Warning for Userenv, Application Error
Under SYSTEM: warning for CD-ROM, ACPI, Windows Update Agent
