Can Burn DVD but Can not Read DVD

Recommended Posts


I would like to burn a disc with several GB of pictures and data that I would prefer not to lose when I either edit them pictures or data or so I can defrag my hard drive. I have a HP Pavilion Model a1600n with a XP operating system. The optical drive is a TSST CD/DVDW TS-H652L. The media is Nexxtech DVD-R 4.7 GB. I recently loaded CDBurner XP.

To test CDBurnerXP I compiled and burnt a DVD with about a dozen pictures. I did not have the log feature on (do now) but I did see a favorable completion message. I then tried to read the DVD and the light in the optical read window just blinked and blinked. Also when I opened My Computer could not access the optical drive.

All ideas and suggestions appreciated.
