I know nothing about burning a DVD, still less about the significance of speed ratings ona Burner! I have a Dell 2400 which is fitted with a Samsung CDRW/DVD 48x Combo (Model SM-348B). I recently purchased VideoStudio 8 and successfully burned a small trial project to a CD-RW in DVD-Video. I now want to burn a real project to DVD but the Burner will not recognise the presence of the blank DVD I have loaded. Thinking that I might have to initialise the blank disc, I tried to do so but again, Sonic tells me to 'Insert Media'.
Is this a hardware problem, a software problem or am I simply using the wrong type of blank DVD discs? I did ask Dell and Samsung for guidance as to which discs I should purchase but got no response from them. I actually bought a pack of PCLINE DVD-RW2x from PC World.
I have since put the above problem to both Samsung and Dell. Samsung tell me I should contact Dell whilst Dell are telling me nothing to date. I am getting nowhere fast. Can you please enlighten me!
