|Strange problem... |
I was trying to copy some photos for a friend onto a blank DVD. I continually got the message "Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file. What do you want Windows to do?", and the only options were to skip, cancel or retry. I got the same msg when trying to copy ANYTHING onto the DVD drive. To make myself clear, this msg occurred when I was simply copying the phots onto the E: drive, not while attempting to burn the info.
Thinking the DVD might be bad, I inserted a blank CDR and attempted the same thing. This time the photos were copied, and I got the little msg in the notification area that files were waiting to be burned to CD. I clicked on the icon, opening up the wizard, and burnt the photos onto the CDR. The CDR then ejected. So far, so good...
I pushed the drawer back in to ascertain that the photos were actually on there, but the drive could not be accessed. I even went into the DOS prompt and tried to access the E: drive without success.
However I CAN put a CD or DVD, that I had burnt a couple years ago into the drive and play that just fine.
Does anybody have a clue what the problem is, or what I might be doing wrong?
