this is the drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151173

i don't think i ever tried using dvd+rw before, always cd-rw but i figured i would use something with more space.

went to walmart and bought these - http://www.walmart.com/ip/Memorex-10-Pack-4x-DVD-RW-with-Slimline-Jewel-Cases/7754457

when i tried to copy something to the dvd or format it, i get errors such as windows encountered and error trying to copy the file, or windows cannot finish erasing the disc and has stopped.

am i blind? what am i missing here?

Some drivers just plain dont like certain brands of discs, I would try a different brand. I would also check to make sure your DVD drive supports DVD-RWs.

I didnt see that in the link, thankyou Dc3. I would suspect the media either doesnt work with the drive (it happens) or the drive is likely defective.

Since the drivers for the optical drive are native, reinstall them and see if this makes a difference.

Go to Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager.

Scroll down to DVD/CD ROM Drivers, double click on this, click on the DVD drive that this is related to. The page that opens will have tabs at the top, click on Driver. When this opens you will have the option to Uninstall the driver, click on this option. This will uninstall the driver, restart the computer and the installation wizard will recognize the absence of the driver and reinstall it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
