The thrill of DVD-writers :(

i bought a new pc and was eager to try out its dvd writer drive.

When i put the blank disc in it comes up with cd drive instead of dvd re-writer. When i go to instant cd-dvd it will burn it but when it sayd resetting device it stays there for ever i waited all day.

And when i restarted the machine it couldnt recognise the disc.

Whats wroung with my new machine?

need anymore info jst ask!!!

What software are you burning with ?

Windows built in software does not like cd burners.
You need Nero or x-oom or some such.
