OK, I have a cheap optarite dvd rw drive. I create documents weekly and save them to a dvd rw. Every month or two I will go to save a new doc. only to be told that I don't have access to the drive that it is read only. I check the disc and see that it is completely full and all the docs. are read only. Of course it isn't full. So I have to copy it all on to a new disc and reformat the old one and everything is fine for another couple of months. Then, this week, a new twist. In one folder containing about 20 docs., all the files are gone! The folder is there but it is empty. In another folder several of the docs are there but there is nothing in them! this is a home computer so I count out sabatoge. I have thought of a virus of some sort but I don't think so. Could the Nero and Incd programs be the problem? I have had this problem for at least a year. It seems rediculous. Any help? Thanks.
