    Have you tried to remove and refit it, double checking all connections?

    Is the DVD burner the only burner installed??

    Or have you got a cd writer installed as well? (Whats in the first slot)?

    If you have 2 burners (a cd and a dvd writer installed), I would check if you've jumpered one to Master and the other to slave.

    And also make sure neither (if you're using 2 burners), are on the same IDE connection as a hard drive.

    no i have removed it now cause i thought it was the problem it only started when we did that. When it was in i think hubby connected it to the slave connection i have opened the box a number of times and pushed things back and all. Another friend said something about reimageing and taking off the crative photo program off its really fustrating
