I have a dual boot system, with WIN XP/Linux SuSe, and I cannot get my DVD burner to enable. Everything I do in the Windows process to enable it, fails. I can burn CD's through Linux, but the DVD burner cannot be activated. Any suggestions?

First, ensure that your system meets the minimum requires listed on the DVD burner's packaging Next, ensure it's compatibility with Windows and Linux by checking their hardware compatibility lists (sometimes known as an HCL), which you can find on their websites.

Microsoft: SuSe:

Ensure you have downloaded the latest drivers for both operating systems

Hope this helps!
