CD Writer not writing/reading

\015 My Acer 3000 CD writer doesn't seem to write or read. Could it be a conflict with the Windows XP and NTI Back up loaded software? Both were on the PC when I purchased it new. Neither has been amended; CD has always been a bit tempramental. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

When you open "My Computer" or Windows Explorer, can you see the drive? If you can see the drive then there's no conflict.
\015\012If you can't see the drive, then either it's disconnected, disabled, or bad.
\015\012If you can see the drive, the try downloading software to remove Malware from your system - quite of such software will shut down your CD drives. Otherwise, replace the drive if it's replacable, or get an external drive.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
