    I'm new to burning dvds for backup. I have the version of RecordNow that came with my Dell. I read through one of ScubaPete's guides and downloaded DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter. Everything went fine with DVD Shrink, but when it was time for DVD Decrypter to kick in it said ...medium not present. I initially started with a TDK DVD-R and then I switched to a Sony DVD+R, because I read where it could be the media I'm using, but got the same message. What am I doing wrong?

    Are you sure you have a dvd burner?
    Whats the make and model #

    Are their updated versions of firmware available?

    Does device manager see your burner?

    Do not think the DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter have problems - have used both for 500 burns plus.

    Think the error may be operator or harware/system malfunction.

    Read some guides.

    Yes, I do have a burner. Here is the make and model# JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166. I am not familiar with firmware. The device manager does recognize the burner.

    I thought this was the problem and solution, but I guess not:

    updating your firmware will bring your burner up to date with the latest different media available



    you can use NERO INFO TOOL to scan your drive.to see if it will BURN DVD/CD


    are you sure this is a burner??.if i am mistaken i think this a dvd rom drive for playing dvd only and WILL NOT burn dvd
    i beg your pardon if i am wrong
    with regards hursty

    Thanks for the info. Any suggestions on a quality, yet inexpensive burner?
