my dvr-104 will not recognize any blank media. Every time I try to burn Ripped dvd movies to my dvd burner from my hard drive using Nero 18.104.22.168, Nero freezes jost after the file allocation step prior to writing. The whole time the message on the bottom half of the screen says DVR-104: idle. Ive completely reformatted my c drive and re installed wimdows xp, nero, dvd x copy dvd x copy xpress and dvd shrink 2.3. Another interesting fact is that when i install a blank dvd in my dvr-104, it has a tendency to freeze my pc. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I also just ordered a pioneer dvr-105 just in case its my burner gone bad. thanks in advance.
