    That sounds like the situation you get when you put in a blank RW disc that hasn't been formatted. Do you have a different brand of media you can try. Maybe you have a defective blank.

    Remove the drive in device manager and re-boot so Windows reinstalls it again. That will straighten out any possible problem with the system driver for the Nec.

    Are you using an OEM version of Nero?? Some OEM versions do not have the DVD burner software avaialable/enabled.
