this SHOULD be simple,but I can't get to a help file. on Prel v3,how do you make an "auto=play" dvd? when I go to the "create dvd" workspace, auto-play is grayed out.
also,while I'm at it,why after you try to burn to a disc,does it tell me "no dvd writer selected"? no,rescan doesn't work.
these questions could be answered by a help file if that feature worked.
Your drive is apparently not being recognized by the program.
What operating system do you have? Have you ensured that you have the 3.04 update for version 3?
Version 3.04 is certified for XP and Vista only. It may or may not work on Windows 7 -- and it could well have problems interfacing with your DVD burner in Windows 7 64-bit.
