Question

I have created a slideshow with audio and when I try to burn a DVD the software doesn't see the DVD+R disc in the drive. If I put a CD in the drive it says it is not the correct media so I know it sees the drive. Any hints?

Until you give some more information it is impossible to offer any hints. For a start you could tell us what program you are using as there are many program under the Roxio banner that are able to create slideshows.

 

Once you tell us what program you are using we can then move your topic to the correct forum and you may get some help there.

A step by step description would help.

Some older drives will only handle DVD-R, and some will only handle only DVD+R although newer drives will handle both.

Have you previously burned DVD+R discs in that drive, and what is the drive make and model number?

I am using Roxio creator 2011. I have a DVD burner that claims to handle DVD+/-R with lightscribe. When I went to the Roxio MyDVD portion and hit burn the popup box says the drive is empty. I am using a DVD+R disc. My drive does read and write to CD's. I haven't tried writing to DVD media. This was my first attempt.

Different lasers are used for cds and for DVD so they are very independent. Go to the burner manufacturer's we site and update the firmware for the burner. Be careful or you will make a doorstop. While you are there, look at the brand of DVD that they suggest.

 

If you don't know what brand of burner you have, use Windows Device Manager to see the information string and then search for that.

 

Note: you said the manufacturer said thet the burner /reader "handles" both +R and -R. Does you burner information says that it will burn DVDs ? Some older optical drivers read and burn cd but just read DVD.
