We use apps such as CDBURNERXP for that.
I am running Windows XP on a home-built computer. I have been able to burn DVDs using my Plextor PX-712A DVD-RW in the past, but am unable to burn discs with this drive anymore.
The drive is still recognized by Windows, and when I put a disc in the drive, it can be read by double clicking the drive in My Computer. However, when I put a blank disc into the drive and try to run Nero (or DVD Shrink), the only options listed as burnable devices are my CD-RW or creating an ISO image -- the Plextor drive is not there.
I have tried downloading and installing the legacy drivers found at http://www.plextoramericas.com/index.php/firmware-manual-others/additional-legacy-firmware/108-px-712a-sa-uf-109 but to no avail, it still does the same thing.
Are there any thoughts as to what could be causing this problem? I have posted my computer specs below.
