    it might be that the drive doesn't support dvd-r discs, there are two formats, dvd-r and dvd+r so you have to get the right one

    if you put the wrong one in the drive it won't do anything, it'll probably spit it out eventually, after deciding that what you've put in is alien technology

    What kind of DVD's are you trying to copy and what program are you using?

    Ensure your burner can HANDLE the correct type of disc. There are +R and -R discs.

    Some burners are universal and can do both.
    Toshiba does -R.
    I am not sure about DELL.
