DVD BURNER ISSUE PLEASE HELP!!

by chris tall / March 2, 2006 8:08 AM PST

I have a Samsung TS-H552 DVD+RW. A website for the SPECS is http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/samsung_ts-h552_dvd_burner.php

Now my problem is that the burner will allow me to read/write to CD's, but wont read/write DVD's. Perhaps someone could help me?

My pc specs are as follows:
Custom Built

P3 1.31 GHZ
NvIDIA GEFORCE 4 64MB
Windows XP PRO
768 MB SDRAM

More than enough to support the drive, i jsut need some help...thank you for your time.

Burners usually come with bare bones software. Download a trial copy of WINDVD and see if that solves your problem. I just went through this with a new NEC burner.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
