A cd/dvd lens cleaner and another DVD drive?
Hello, I've just added a slave drive to my Dell Inspiron 4700 running Windows XP Pro. I changed the location of the OS backup image to the new 1tb slave drive (and also to a new 1tb external drive) using Acronis True Image. I wanted to generate a new boot disc but the Phillips DVD writer wouldn't cooperate. I went into the Properties of the DVD drive and noticed the "Write to CDs" button was unchecked. Cool. After rechecking, the DVD drive did write one boot disc. When I tried to write a second boot disc, I got the message "invalid media." I've had this happen before a month or so ago while burning CDs for my car, but changed disc manufacturer and that fixed it. Now the DVD writer won't burn anything. Using more than one burn software. What's up?
