Hi,
I need some help with my DVD drive. Just last week it was recording fine
in SVCD format. Then on Saturday I tried to record in DVD format and it did
not recognize the blank DVD. I tried changing DVDs even though they are all
new. Still nothing happened. I am using Nero Uploaded to record with and my
system is XP Pro with all the updates installed. What can I do? The boss is
waiting for this video!

Why are you burning this to DVD? It will fit on a CD.
