Thanks for helping out -- as you confirm, I was under the impression that you didn't have to format DVD discs anymore! I'm operating Windows 7 on my Dell 8300 desktop. I do a lot of video biographies, or life stories
on video. The files are typically 3 to 4.5 gigs in size. For years I was using Roxio Creator DE to copy discs. When the program stopped working, I purchased Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning. The new program
will create a temporary file for the purpose of creating a copy, but it will not recognize a blank disc when I insert it. I tend to think that the problem is with my computer and not the new program, but I don't know for sure.
Do you have any ideas to share?
Thanks for your time!
