What are you trying to use at the moment to burn to it?

Are you trying to burn a DVD-Movie? Data-DVD?

Data DVD. I can burn onto a CD but when it comes to DVD it is not so helpfull. Yes it is a DVD-RW

What software?

Im willing to be you're using something like an OEM of Nero which is locked to the drive type that it came with.

So there's no point using Nero or the likes if it came with a Ricoh drive on a Lite-On CD or DVD Drive coz it just wont work.

Try using the in-built Windows Burning software stuff, or have a wee look online for some free burning software :-)

Best not to try the "in-built Windows Burning software stuff" as XP doesn't support DVD-/+ R / RW.

A trial version of Nero 6 is on the cover of the current PC World.
