DVD is not recordable, Acer Extensa 5420

\015 When i record into Windows DVD Maker and hit burn and put a new DVD-R into the drive i get the following error message, "DVD is not recordable". Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Just put in the blank dvd without trying to burn anything to it and see
if your pc see's the blank dvd, if not find one that is recognized by your pc. After you put in a blank dvd, it should show under my computer in the drive and should be able to open it like a folder, or
windows will pop up a little window that ask's if you would like to burn anything to the dvd.
