Subject: Unable to backup to DVD+R RW

Trying to backup to DVD+R RW CD. Whenever I click on the CD/DVD tab, I get a CHECK on Read and Write on DVD+R and Read & Write on DVD+RW, plus the "Internal ASPI" message appears so evidently I should be able to write to a DVD+R or DVD+RW.

To start the backup, I set the DVD drive as destination but whenever I insert a blank DVD+R RW CD into the drive, it seems it's unable to recognize it (never stops reading the CD) and the screen won't reflect the size of the target CD in the drive. This same DVD drive is able to play videos or read JPG files from a DVD+R RW, and of course able to read/write to regular CD +R/RW.

What seems to be the problem? Is it my DVD Driver? Tried using the "Device Selection" but same problem. Other info: Windows XP Home Ed ver 2002, Service Pack 2. Compaq 2241AP Notebk, Pentium M. DVD Drive is Toshiba ODD DVD.

Thanks and sincerely hope you'll get back to me ASAP.
