the selected drive is not capable of writing, if you have several CD DVD drives try using another drive, otherwise you may need to install a CD DVD writer
I made no changes to the system, did not install anything new, am using the same DVD type disk as before this happened and now if i try to burn with Alcohol or Nero it says:
this device needs a DVD R/W format disk...and the Fix it says the drive is not capable at all.
I have a Windows XP Pro SP3 set up, AMD hard drive and all else is clean and working well.
About a month ago all drives stopped burning with -R, and i had to switch to +R to burn, but it worked fine on those after that. We tried replacing the IDE cable but no change...and my tech did not know what else to do than to try a different format disk. I have burned a lot of DVDs so maybe the drive is gone but why both drives? And on any type of burning program? i tried three, Nero, Covert2DVD and Alcohol..none will burn.
Can you guys help?
