2 Problems with 4.7gig Laser write once dvds, but no probs with 700meg TDK re-writables.

Please can someone tell me if this is only happening to me ,or other
people burning data to dvds ?

Here are the 2 problems I am facing.

1. Computer does not display files after burning ,but does on my external dvd player, and on
(700meg re-writable TDK and only on these displays filenames on the computer.)

2. Basic windows writing program will not write to 4.7gig Laser DVDs,
but Nero burning does.

Basic windows writing program will burn/write to 700meg TDK re-writables.

The TDK 70MB discs are CDs. The 4.7GB discs are DVDs.
Windows built-in cd-writing utility is just that, a CD-writing utility. It will not write to any type of DVD.

For DVD-writing you need a third-party application such as the Nero one you already have.

So as far as I can tell from your post, your PC is working as it should.
