    Ive been trying for a few days now to burn a dvd. I have dvd decryptor and Dvd shrink and im pretty sure i know how to use them pretty well..my problem comes after i get my .ISO file and i try to burn it into my DVD+R disk. The error message i get is Device not ready (no reference position found), and one my other computer i get Device not ready(no medium found) i am very frustrated with this.

    Might be a media issue, have you tried a different brand ?

    if you have alcohol 120,you can use this to determine what media type is compatible with your drivers
    use the cd/dvd manager
    with regards hursty

    to see what media type your burners can use...
    cd.dvd manager>system info
    note:it wont tell you what brand you can use,just what type,i.e dvd-r/dvd+r etc etc.

    Maybe your CD/DVD drive does not write CDs ("device not ready" is the error message you get if such is the case). I have a Compaq Presario with a "DVD/CD-RW 'combo' drive". I stupidly thought that meant it would read and write both CDs and DVDs. The documentation for the computer provides no info whatsoever. But technical support now tells me I cannot write DVDs. So why isn't the drive called "DVD-R/CD-RW"?
