  1. I have an older Emachine wiith an AMD 3100+ cpu. I recently installed a Pioneer DVR-113NP dvd burner. It shows as a dvd-ram drive on the my computer folder until I put a blank disc in, and then it changes to just cd. Please Help. I have some home movies to burn. Thank you.

    If you are running XP that is normal. XP doesn't natively burn DVDs, so it just displays that. You will need to use a 3rd party program for burning dvds. The program you are using to import or edit your movies may also be able to burn them as well.

    ditto. Use a good freeware program to burn DVDs. like freeburn.
