Dell XPS 410 1GB-Ram 232-HD XP Home Edition. I have used Nero7 fore a long time and used DVD+RW for DVD burning. The last item I burned was an ISO image of SQL Server2008. I then installed the express personal stand alone edition. I Have not made any other changes, but now my E: drive will not read a blank DVD+RW's or DVD-RW's. Every time I try to burn a DVD, I get a put a DVD in the drive window. If I try to open the Drive I get the response of (E:\ is not accessible Incorrect function. It will still read and play previously burned DVDs. My other drive will reply to put a disk in the drive. I'm really confused. Is this a setting, command, or could my drive be going bad. My system is 4yrs old. Drive TSST corp DVD+-RW TS-H553A .Any help would be very much appreciated.

Try removing Nero, and using something else. I used to have this issue with older software on updated windows. I once lost all my CD-ROM's when using an outdated Roxio, and that was fixed with updating. I would recommend doing the same.

One of the things you must be aware of for more reasons than one is that updating Windows and all of your other applications is important regardless of what might happen. One thing that corporations are afraid of is that updates cause problems, which they can, but it hasn't happened in a long time, at least not on Windows. So don't leave older versions of programs on your computer even if they are running fine.
