I have a DellXPS600 and running Windows XP. The internal DVD burner will no longer burn disks. It will, however, read and open files. When I right click on the drive to view the properties of a blank disk, it shows up as being completely full and when I try to burn a disk, I get an error message saying that I need to insert a disk in the drive. This occures when using Nero and Sonic software. Thanks for any help you can offer.

You may need to get a new burner.

This occures when using Nero and Sonic software.


Those 2 have never played well together, even uninstalling Sonic leaves filter drivers etc that can interfer with other burning programs.

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