Hi all,

I am having problems with my CD/DVD burner drive. The cd/dvd burner has always work correctly. I checked the IDE cables to make sure nothing was loose. The only problem is I cannot write to any dvd or cd. Is the dvd burner or motherboard knackered?

Thanks

Andrew

what you are saying is that it is a combo drive (Burns CD's Plays DVD's) that it will not burn dvds and only CD's

When burning using the standard windows software it says the dvd is full when its a blank.

What are your system specs?

P4 2.6GHZ, 120GIG HARD DRIVE, 256 GRAPHICS, GIGABYTE MOTHERBOARD

Any ideas?
