  • Jumping to the worst case scenario first, you can request a refund for a retail purchase if you are in North America per the information here - 




    I am not clear how you know that the disc is full and won't erase if you can't complete a DVD and cannot open the DVD. If you are using DVDRW media that has been previously erased, try using new blank DVD-R (or +R) media.


    You can contact support for help.

  • OK. New DVD+R. There is about 22GB to backup.On a 4.7G disc it should take 10 or so minutes to record to full. After 1.5 hour I removed the disc. It was still working as in "still loading" when I removed the disc. Anyhow, it was still working and should have been finished a long time ago. When trying to open the DVD, the drive "D" is shown with no files. When I try to record to this same DVD using another program,an icon shows the DVD is full.
