PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows XP SP2
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:NEC DVD RW

Error Messages: Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy to this file.



I'm trying to copy pictures and files to dvd+r's and I keep getting that message. I've used the DVD before with cd's but this is the first time I've tried to copy files/pics to a dvd+r.
When I look under Device Manager it says 'this device is working properly' and I like I mentioned above, I have used it with cd's before.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong, unless it's the dvd's I bought. The Pack says Color DVD+R 4.7GB Go Up to 8x. Off to the side of the pack it also says 'RW DVD.R'
I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks

Your DVD has to support the cd itself. There are five kinds of writable DVD technology (DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM). If your DVD does not support dvd+r's this is possibly why you are getting this error.

Oh ok. I looked under Device Manager and it says my DVD is DVD-RW so that means I can only use the dvd's that are rw only?
