I can not write any media to disk. Well....that is a lie. I DID manage to make a backup of my cpu files using Dell's backup program. I did it just to see if my internal drive was operational. I can use the drive to view media. I just cannot add media to a disk. It is not the disk themselves as I have used them on many occasions. I have updated the drive. Uninstalled the drive and reinstalled it. Manually installed updates to the drive. I even connected an external drive and cannot write media using this device. I don't know if ALL my files have become write protected or something of the like but it is very frustrating.

Thanks in advance for any help. Casey.

I tried microsoft fixit prior to the org. post. Honestly I don't think it is my drive. Perhaps it is my files? I downloaded Take Ownership and tried it out on my personal files, didn't help. I've changed the property to reflect anyone can manipulate the files and I am the only person who uses my computer. Anyone know how to use msconfig (what I should type in for values) to make sure all files are writable? Thanks Louis for the reply.
