    I was using widows 7. It came with trial software for burning DVDs but
    it time expired. I was running nero but I when the DVD was installed a
    window came up and do you want to burn the DVD with windows. Then I
    copy the files I wanted to save to the window and asked it to burn the
    DVDs and it said it was doing it. Later when I moved the DVD to
    another computer the DVD was empty. This has happens ever since
    burning a CD was possible. I had the same problem in XP. The big
    problem is it says it can do it and it can;t and it says it did it and
    it didn't.
