Hello. I recieved the Plextor PX-716A DVD writer as a birthday present this November. It has been working fine until yesterday. I had just finished burning a backup of one of my movies and went to burn some data stuff and it wouldn't detect the CD-R. DVD-R worked fine though, so I used that. Later last night, I went to burn some more data stuff and now even DVD-R's do not work. I was afraid it might be virus/spyware, so I did a scan for both. Had some spyware, but no viruses. So this is what happens: 1. I insert a piece of blank media 2. I used to get a pop up askign what I wanted to do with the blank disc, but I no longer recieve that 3. I try to use a CD/DVD burning program (I have tried Alchohol 120%, DVD X Copy, Nero, and a few others), but it keeps asking me to insert a disc Any help would be greatly appreciated .
