Media Center / DVD Maker burning issues.
Total newbie on this forum (only just found it), so hello all! I'm a moderator for various other (non IT-related) forums, so I've done the pre-requisite searches before asking, but can't find anything, so here goes...
I've just done a fresh build of W7HESP1 on my eldest daughter's PC, and it simply won't burn anything from Media Center (which should, of course, be 'Centre', but ...!) or Windows DVD maker. Burning files directly from explorer to CD or DVD is fine. It simply bombs out with ...
... very helpful. Was this "usefulness" inherited from Vista? An error code would be helpful. Event Manager isn't great either.
I found this thread, but that turned out to be a faulty device - the fact that I was able install the OS from the drive, and that it will read and write from the OS implies that it's not a hardware issue.
This is (no - was) my old machine, and it was working just perfectly with Windows 7 until I yoinked all my documents onto my new one, scratch-formatted the HD and re-installed. The only software that's been installed (apart from the obvious Windows Update files and eight-million reboots) is Google Chrome - all other devices were recognised by Windows 7, so I've not bothered updating anything as yet.
Gigabyte GA-K8VT800P mainboard (BIOS rev F14)
2GB (single stick) Kingston DDR400 memory
Maxtor something-or-other 100Gb HDD (SATA, primary)
LG GH22NS50 DVD (SATA, secondary)
I've read on MSTechnet that power settings can affect this, so I've followed the advice and set the "Sleep after" value to "never", but that's made no difference.
Any ideas, people?

Thanks TV, but I've tried that, and as the DVD drive is recognised and seemingly "working", it offered no help whatsoever. I've installed (and uninstalled) Nero from the DVD drive in question, and that will happily burn stuff, so the finger is pointing at Media Centre and DVD Maker.
I've got a spare IDE DVDRW kicking around somewhere, so when I get home, I'll whack that in and see if it works, and that might narrow it down a little.
