Hi, I tried to make a system recovery disk for my new puter (an easy task to do) and when I did the steps: start, system recovery, create my drivers and applications, burn ISO, start creation, and then asks me to use cd or dvd and I choose dvd since thats the media I'm using. I insert the disk when it tells me to and hit ok and then a message pops up that says no valid media and ejects my disk. The disk is verbatim brand which is a good brand and I'm using the right disk, (2.4x dvd+R DL) for my 4x dvd+R DL lite-on optical drive so I can't figure out whats wrong. I tried calling gateway about this and all they could suggest is downloading nero's latest upgrade which won't download for some reason. So now I'm back to either calling gateway again or taking it to bestbuy for them to figure it out for me unless someone here know exactly what I should try and or do.

$12.99 for 3 DL disks "ouch!" I'll be broke before I know it if I keep gett'n these :thumbsup:

Try copying something besides the ISO to see if the drive works. You may have a bad file you are trying to burn.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.
