DVD+RW ND-2100AD: Waiting for Disc ? x

Please insert the disc to write to...

Disc required for the compilation: DVD+R/RW

Any response may be extremly slow. Please be patient.

It you have a DVD-R disc in the drive it wont work because that message if you read carefully is asking for a DVD+R you get to formats of DVDs plus and minus most burners these days can do both but it looks like yours needs the + format to work.

I wasnt going to do this when I first read the thread, but since you sent me that "nice" PM...

Warriorscot, he's trying to copy movies. His other thread was shut down, and he is on more than one administrator's S list.

Agentx, both this thread (and my post in its entirety) and the PM you sent me have been fowarded to Kat.

To everyone else reading, please do NOT reply until Kat has posted here. But I have a feeling this thread won't remain open long.
