Default Help me please!

Hey. I have an HP Pavilion a620n. On the HP website, it says that I have some Philips DVD Burner. Well, I have a NEC 2100ad (2500a) and it doesn't burn DVD's, only CD's. Is there any possible way that I can fix this problem?

Those are my PC specs. Except for the DVD Burner because as I said, that's not that one that I have.

Windows doesn't support DVD authoring. Use Nero.

Believe it or not, I have tried nero. It didn't work for me. Everytime I tried to burn a dvd, it told me to insert a blank DVD. I have tried to insert 3-4 DVD's to see if one of them was defective, but it seems as if Nero just doesn't want to burn it. Is there anything else I could try that might make my DVD Burner work?

Well, everytime I try and do it, i get this message saying "Target Nec ND-2500A is not found correctly." So, I have no idea what to do.

Remove the drive and check the model name/number.

I would try using Alcohol 120%. It works wonders on 99% of all disc burning....Nero sucks guys, no offense but there's WAY better burning software out there...
