Burning error - device does not support the write mode

Os: Win7 32bit

CDBurnerXP: (also tried

DVDR: Plextor DVDR PX-716A

I'm using CDBurnerXP (also tried with a Plextor DVDR PX-716A DVD writer.

I'd like to write an .mds (and .mdf) image file to disk, which I've create a minute ago, but always get the same error:

'Burning error occured

An error occured while burning the disc. Most likely the disc is not usable. Usually, these errors happen if the inserted media is not compatible to the drive or of poor quality.

Unsupported write mode:

Device does not support the write mode'

This error appears a second after I press the Burn button.

I tried 3 different discs: 4.7 GB TDK, Philips, Emtec - the same error.

In version, I could choose the write mode, and tried DAO 96, DAO 16 and SAO - always the same error: 'Device does not support the DAO 96 / DAO 16 write mode'.

In the case of SAO write mode the error message was something like: 'This write mode can only be used with .mds images' - which is funny, since I'd like to burn an .mds image...

According to CPBurnerXP's device information, my drive supports (among others):

Writes Mode DAO: Yes

Writes Mode DAO 96 Packet Write: Yes

Writes Mode DAO 96 Raw Write: Yes

Writes Mode DAO 16: Yes

Writes Mode RAW DAO: Yes

Writes Mode DAO CD Text: Yes

Writes Mode SAO: Yes

Writes Mode TAO: Yes

Writes Mode Packet Write: Yes

Please advise.

Some additional info: the error seems to be connected with the .mds format.

Some minutes ago, I made an .iso image of the same disc, and I could easily burn it, without any errors.

So .mds must be the culprit.
