CD drives don't do DVD, if that's the issue.

I think we could definitely benefit from a Computer forum around here.

I know it's early still, but I think that would work.

You'll have to show me what these DVD-RW's look like.

As far as I know, there's only DVD-R, DVD+R, and DVD-Ram.

But does your laptop have a DVD drive? And if so, Is it a DVD-R or just DVD?

Also, there are two DVD formats as I recall, DVD+R and DVD-R, check to make sure your disks and drive are the same.

Just retitle this thread, and ask your questions in here. Hopefully the mods will notice and sticky it.

yes the laptop has a dvd drive too. (by dvd drive im assuming you mean on the disk slot it says DVD on it)

i only knew how to format on the laptop cuz it was given to me as an instruction. so i assumed i could do the same thing with my desktop...

If it only says DVD, and not DVD+R or DVD-R or something like that, then it can't write to the disk. Also, since the disk is +R, your laptop would not be able to write to it if it's a DVD-R drive.

That's the first time I've seen DVD+RW.

How are those different from RVD-Ram disks?

Why don't you try Nero to burn your disks?
If Nero won't do it, nothing will.

OK let's start from the beginning.

Tell me:
  • Exactly what kind of drive unit you have
  • Exactly what kind of media you're trying to record to
  • How much data are you trying to burn

-DVD standard
-pictures and a few sk8 videos
-almost 2000 MB

alright, i tried Nero, and i cant burn a data dvd.

but i can burn a data cd. but it only allows 700MB, can i just overload it with my 2000 MB worth of data? BCUZ I HAVE A 4.7 GB DVD in THE DRIVE???

or will it shit on me during burning?
