Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

DVD Writing Problem

\015 I am an absolute neophyte on this... I down loaded ''Burn My Files v3.5'' and ''Nero'S'' -- DvD burn software.. My PRESARIO SR1215CL operating on Windows XP Home Edition does not recongized my Verbatim DVD+R 4.7GB disc (when Inserted) nor will either v3.5 or Nero burn a DvD after they are loaded. Both v3.5 and Nero, after being loaded, accept the files to be burned, but do not activate further for me to ''click'' the ''burn DvD'' button. What is the problem? Does my system not have a DVD writer and is that why I can't recognize the DVD?\015

Answers :

The specs on your PC can be found by clicking here. From what I read on this page, you can record CDs, but only read DVDs. So, to burn DVDs, you would need to purchase and install a DVD burner. They are pretty inexpensive right now, so if someone in your area is handy with PC stuff, they could install one within 10 minutes for you.

Good Luck

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).
