No disk is present

Discussion in 'AnyDVD HD (DVD issues)' started by missmymarine2001, Aug 11, 2007.

  1. I have been putting my blank dvd in drive D and my movie in drive E. AnyDVD and Roxio can see my movie in drive E, but not my blank DVD in drive D. However, it does work for my CD's and blank CD's. I tried switching this around, putting the blank in E and the movie in D. Then, I get from AnyDVD that D is disabled. Any ideas on what the problem is? Is it possible that my D drive only allows CD's or could it hopefully be something simpler than that? If not, what are my other options?

    1. Specify a)the brand and b)model number of drive d

    2. Do step 8 from here: with the commercial dvd movie in drive D

    3. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Go to "Drives"-->"Selection". Is drive "d" checked on the right hand side of the screen?

  3. I know that I am going to sound really computer illiterate, but how do I find out that information? Do I go to my computer?

    My operating system is XP on a Dell.

    I just downloaded the latest version of AnyDVD.

    Is Roxio Easy CD/DVD Burning considered Packet writing Software?

    The blank DVD that I am putting in is Office Depot DVD-R 16x 4.7 GB.

    Roxio is burning it at 48.1x MAX (8.3MB/Sec)

    Drive D= Samsung SW-252S

    Drive D is a cd burner, and it can't read dvds.

    This has no bearing on your cd-rw burner being unable to read dvds. However, use Verbatim (if you're in the U.S, is once source), Taiyo Yuden Premium (if you're in the U.S., is one source), Maxell Plus (made in Japan . . . generally not easy to find), or Maxell Broadcast Quality (made in Japan . . . even less easy to find) instead of what you are using (also, do not buy regular Maxell blank media).

  6. If that's the case, what are my options? Do I buy an external DVD drive to go with the DVD burner drive? Or, do I save each movie to my computer and then burn it to drive E?
    Thank you!!!!

    You can do either if you wish. Generally speaking with Anydvd running in the background, you shouldn't
    experience issues with whatever program you use (the single dvd burner should eject your commercial movie and prompt you to insert blank media)

    If you want one of the simplest options, I would recommend trying this:

    I think you'll find the program is very easy to use.
