External DVD -/+ RW


OSNN Senior Addict
I am trying to backup some dvd's but however I can't. I am using a I/O Magic 8x dual format DVDRW 1008 with an bytecc external case. I am running WinXP SP2. It's not recognizing the blank dvd? What am I doing wrong?
mmmmmmmmmm............ Try and update your Drivers mate. Also, what are you burning with. (i mean what program, roxio, nero, what?)

I'm using DVDShrink to re author and then using Nero 6.6 Reloaded.

I can view DVD but can't burn DVD. In My Computer it shows up as a DVD-RW however when I put in a Blank DVD-R or DVD+R it changes over to CD-ROM and a little "DVD-R" on the Drive Icon. The drive I have is I/O Magic 8x -/+ R/RW drive model IDE1008 and is installed in a Bytecc USB 2.0 IDE enclosure.

It could be the media. You could popp the burner into your PC case and see if it burns the blanks in there.

Also check your settings for burn speed. Try 2.4x or slower. You could be trying to brun faster than the USB interface can support. Or faster than the medioa can support.

Google for a copy of "DVD Identifier" to read the media and drives.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
