I'm having some trouble working out why I can't burn DVDs on this one particular computer. I usually burn DVDs (DVD-RWs actually) on my other computer, and it always works, every time.
The computer having the trouble does have a DVD burner drive and I think it is properly functioning (I could swap the drive for another if need be, it does read the DVDs perfectly fine). No matter what software I use, it just doesn't want to erase the disc in preperation for writing new data to it. CDBurnerXP goes through the process without error, but doesn't actually do anything, and the process is far too quick. ImgBurn shows an error message regarding write speeds.
A picture's worth a thousand words:
I did try the AWS (Automatic Write Speed?) and 1x speed settings. Same error.
I did do a Google search when I first discovered this problem. It lead me to believe that there is some sort of missing driver (I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3), but even after reinstalling the Intel chipset drivers, the problem is still there.
I don't want to boot up my other computer just to burn a DVD, especially since it's not easily accessible right now. So any wisdom and expertise on the subject to spare would be appreciated.
