DVD RW not working


Kilty

Likes # 0

I have recently reformatted my PC and reinstalled windows. I have a DVD Drive, a DVD RW and a CD ROM drive (as I have a CDROM pogram that I keep in there.

The first drive is listed as DVDRW, the second as DVD RAM and the third as CD ROM. I am unable to burn anything on to DVD using the DVDRW (listed as DVD RAM) I just get error messages or nothing happens. Both drives can play DVDs.

Does anyone have any ideas why I am unable to use the burner? Thanks in advance for any help given.
