Hello all,

My Dell Dimension E510 is giving me a problem with the Media player (ver.11). I am trying to back up some family videos to dvd and Windows Media player keeps asking me to insert a blank disc. I have tried to and still get the same message. I checked the drive under property manager and the Disk is showing full even though it is new? Thank you for any help. :thumbsup:

Make sure Auto Insert Notification/Autoplay is enabled. This is how explorer knows a new disk has been inserted.

It'd be a good idea to check, if this is WMP issue, or something else.
Try different burning program, like free DVDFlick: http://www.dvdflick.net/

Dvdflick uses Imgburn for burning video dvd's

It's better to just reccomend Imgburn

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

It may also help to know that xp will not recognize dvds.This is why you will need a third party software like IMGBURN to burn you dvds.

You would have to use DvdFlick to convert video files like avi or wmv(moviemaker) into mpeg2(dvd video)

Imgburn would then burn the dvd for you

XP and MediaPlayer can't burn DVD's
