    the brand is called Benq. my friend bought one at the same time and he has no trouble with it. I just reinstalled windows so let me try now and I will get back with you all.

    thanks

    You can't just buy a a recorder and begin to burn DVDs because the contain a copy guard to prevent that. Secondly most DVD are too large for a single DVD-R/+. Go to the software section and download a copy of DVD Shrink which compresses the move to size that will fit on a bunable DVD, and you might want to get a copy of DVD Decrypter as well. If you have the Ultra version of Nero then it can encode as well as burner. If you have a copy of Nero express it works just fine with DVD Shrink. Below is a link to a guide that will help you get started.

    Is it an OEM version of Nero that came with the burner? If so it is crippled and not very functional when it comes to DVD. You need the full Nero 6 Ultra edition (with DVDDecrypter as was mentioned) to use all the DVD funtions.
