    Make sure that one is a Master, and the Second one is a Slave.
    If you look on the back you will see this engraved onto the casing.
    Just move the little square thingy's to the right slot.

    cheers

    Could you clarify this a bit. Which device won't recognise the blank?

    What sort of blank media are we talking about (make, type, speed)

    Ok, after spending some time thinking what this could be short for, the only thing that i came up with was Read The ****ing Manual. Is that what you were meaning by that?

    Make sure you set the DVD/CD Rom as the Source drive.
    And the DVD Burner as the Destination drive.
