    I need help? My computer will not recognize the blank sony dvd+R. After the dvd x copy program reads the dvd, then asks me to insert a blank dvd, i do. However it will not allow me to continue to burn the dvd. It wont even let me press the start button. Please help.

    im not sure the make and model of the drive itself, but it is an IBM thinkpad, model t-42. It says it is a CD-RW/DVD-RW multiburner. Thanks for the help so far
