There are two errors that you may encounter when you try to create a DVD-R or any DVD media disc through the Windows Drag-n-Drop feature.
- Problem Copying: Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file. What do you want windows to do? Retry/Cancel
You drag the file or folder over and it doesn’t work…
- Unable to create folder: Unable to create the folder X: file system error (16389)
You are trying to make a set of new folders on a blank DVD media disc…
Interestingly enough, these errors are both due to Windows XP’s lack of support for DVD burning. It has built-in CD Burning capability, but not DVDs. I believe Vista/7 DOES have this ability.
So, in order to make a DVD, you will need a third-party program or the program that your system was bundled with. Mine did not have one included so I downloaded Astroburn Lite. It has a Free License for non-commercial use (as of this blog posting).
