Burning to DVD

I have an HP Pavilion computer using XP. I have in the past saved photos on
to DVD+R discs but now seem unable to do so. When I try to save with windows
I get the wizard up saying that either the disc is full or it is the wrong
type of disc. Insert a CD-R disc.
When I try to save using Sonic recordnow I am unable to get into the
programme.

I have tried system restore to no effect. I have even done a system
recovery. When I had just the system reloaded I checked and was able to burn
to disc from windows and could access Sonic recordnow and burn through that
programme. However as soon as I recovered my data from an external hard
drive using retrospect 6 the same situation returned.

I am at a loss as to know what to do next. HP seem to have no idea beyond
reloading all my programmes and losing the data.

WinXP by itself can NOT record on DVD; you need some add-on software.
If your RecordNow came with your HP PC, download it again from
HP site and reinstall. This won't cause loss of your data.

The Pavilion that I once owned(750n) had all of the preinstalled programs
like Sonic installed in a partition.All I had to do was uninstall via
add/remove
then go to all programs>HP System tools>then navigate to the program I
wanted to reinstall and click on it.

It should be similar for you as well,check it out.
