I was able to burn any dvd I liked, then it was only dvd rw discs that I could burn to, now I cannot burn any DVD :-( I tried reinstalling Nero and tried Clone DVD instead .... no joy :-(

I can prepare the files for burning in Nero but then all I get is "waiting for the drive to become ready" appearing in a pop up window ( the burn icon is by then greyed out )

I have no idea how to fix this :-( Please help, I have data files to burn etc. I have not interefered ie changed any settings.

Thank you.

Can you read DVD disks with the drive?

Try running the Nero InfoTool and posting the screen about the drive here.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to TSG, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Here's an example, wasn't too long for me to post. :)

Did you uninstall the DVD as suggested by MysticEyes and reboot? That will sometimes fix these issues. Of course, the drive may have bit the dust, it happens.
