Nope, didn't format or anything. I have now tried both Maxell and Memorex discs with no luck.
The machine is an HP m7640n, Athlon X2, XP Service Pack 2.
Sonic Digital Media Plus v7
PX build 3.0.659, 85
The drive is TSST TS-H652L. I went to HP's site and updated the firmware to 0803. No change with that either.
I seem to be hitting a brick wall with everything I try now. I tried to re-do the PX engine since I downloaded the firmware, and Roxio's link for downloading the PXengine jsut keeps re-directing me to thier main "Ask RoxAnn" page. (The first time I updated the PX engine was from a link posted on a forum, so i wanted to make sure I had the latest).
OK, so i figure Roxio wants me to register my product and fill out my profile, so I tried to do that, and couldn't even get that done. The Roxio - My Account page asks me to select my product, so I select MyDVD, and then it wants the version. I have Sonic Digital Media Plus v7, (PC also has an icon for MyDVD which opens up the same program). The pull-down box has no such thing to even register this product. What gives? Why is it so hard to make sure everything is up to date?
Anyways, I tried a new brand of media today, same results. I put the disk in and the box in the lower left says "disk blank, 4.4Gb Free". As soon as I click burn, it spits it out and tells me to put a blank in.
All I am trying to do is copy a non-copyrighted video for the moment. (wife is making me copy the wedding video before it gets anymore scratched). I have tried the direct copy, and burning an image.
Media player and 1 Click copy DVD burn just fine. So there is something that needs to be fixed from within Sonic.
Any ideas on what to try next?
