    It sounds as though you are trying to run the disk from within Windows. See here

    Thanks Calimanco for your response.

    Is the link you sent to restore Windows from an already created system restore disk? I hope I understood the material correctly.

    My problem is in creating the disk. I'm having trouble writing to a DVD using a USB connected DVD drive.

    I look forward to hearing from you or anyone else who might have a suggestion.

    Regards,
    TonySyd

    Well - whatever this means http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/libr...(v=vs.85).aspx but Event Viewer may have more info and a possible solution - 'cos Google aint.

    Do you have the DVD player plugged in all of the time or just when you need to use it and do you give Windows time to recognize it before you insert the disk ?

    Are you able to write other content using the same DVD drive?

    Could be a defective drive. Can you read/write data from it?

    Also, try opening an elevated command prompt and type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
