Here are the specifics: I am using a usb connection. It gets detected, and it says blank disc when i turn it on and put a disc in. I have been using many discs and programs. My computer is a Dell XP. All of the programs and discs haved worked before, so I am positive that It isn’t them that is the problem. I also know that the burner, discs, and programs work because I just recently burned movies using them at my friend’s house. For some reason, the burner suddenly stopped burning dvds and I made too many coasters. Therefore, I bought a pack of DVD+RWs. They work perfectly in my burner. However, I intended to use them as tests to see if the burner worked, and it still doesn’t burn DVD+Rs. DVD+Rs are the only thing that work in my xbox, and I have about 100 of them, so I need to know how to burn them. Copy protection is not the issue. I know this for two reasons. 1. I have successfully burned about 150 movies, and now I cannot burn three in a row. What are the chances? 2. two of the three movies I am trying to burn are from disc sets that I have successfully burned.
