Error Drive is not Ready when clicking on Prepare button in Instant DVD Recorder

1. MEDIA: Make sure that there is DVD media in the DVD burner. Make sure the media you use is supported by the DVD burner.

2. EXTERNAL 1394 DVD DRIVES: If you are using an external DVD burner, make sure that it is (1) powered on, (2) connected to the 1394 port on the computer and (3) detected by Windows (the drive should be listed in Device Manager).
