I bought a DVD burner, and I got it hooked up and everything. Windows recognized the drive, and it can read CDs and DVDs just fine. However, whenever I put in a blank DVD, it gives me the "what do you want to do" popup as usual, but when I try to put files onto the space for things to be burned, it says "Windows encountered a problem while trying to copy this folder. What do you want Windows to do?"

It only gives me this message when I use a blank DVD. CDs work fine. I'm using DVD-Rs, and those are compatible with the drive. It didn't come with any drivers, so that's not the problem either. Does anyone have any idea for me?

Uh, Windows Explorer? :thumbsup: I just open up My Computer, go to the drive, and drag-and-drop my files to be burned into the window.

Do I HAVE to have separate software for DVDs?

When you bought the drive didn't anything like Nero come with it?

No. It was just the drive, and an install manual.

To clarify, I'm not trying to make video DVDs. I just have some files that are really big and I want to keep, but I don't use regularly. So it's just permanent storage, not videos that I want to watch on a DVD player.
