Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C700T ?

I have 32 bit windows 7- I try to burn the back up dvd's and everytime it either says to please insert media ( its inserted) or it says media needs formatted? I have tried like 50 times and no go every time? I am using HP dvd R 16X 4.7 gig discs. Any Ideas why it REFUSES to burn out recovery dvd's


Answers :

Are you sure that it is a dvd writer >??? and not a cd writer ..dvd combo?? in this case you can not burn but a cd..and play the dvd ...Im saying this cause most of them are equipped like that it plays dvd-es but burn only cd-es..another thing try to install a bunner like nero ..or iso hunt ...if it doesnt want to ..maybe is all in right with the os...in both cases try to burn an image on the hdd ...like in a game that came iso...just choose burn image ..or change the device into the image burner ...and will burn a image with the recovery dvd you want to ...this one export it to another computer on a memory stick ..and burn it to a disk..
Why are you trying to burn back up discs (To burn a copy of the restoration image takes 10 CD's, 2 DVD's or a single dual-layer DVD), when the necessary recovery files are stored on a separate partition on the hard drive?
