I posted this in hardware but no one answered, maybe here is better place. Hope that's OK.
I pulled a DVD burner out of my XP box and put it in my Ubuntu box, it worked. Ubuntu sees it, HL-DT-STDVD-RAM GSA-H20N, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive. I can put in a CD and it mounts.
I want to burn some files, avi, onto DVD. When I try, using the CD/DVD Creator function I'm told to put in a blank DVD. Then it just keeps repeating the request.
I've seen some recommendations for additional software but also people saying they don't work.
Any solutions? Recommendations?
