No imgburn log, we can't help you. But if imgburn says it's not empty, it's not empty.

Most likely, the cause in an issue like this is the user is attempting to burn a disc in a DVD-ROM drive, one that reads DVD's but does not write them.  But, we'd need a log of an attempted burn.  Or, at least, the model number of your DVD drive.

 

Other possible cause: the recordable DVD you inserted has already been burned and cannot be added to.

Dvd-rom? No chance. Since imgburn is a burn tool, read only drives don't even get listed for use as a target drive to do the burning

I wasn't sure about that.  Someone once posted they couldn't burn with ImgBurn and it was because they had a DVD-ROM drive.  However, I couldn't remember if WHY they posted was because their DVD-ROM was listed in the targets or if it wasn't and that's why it wouldn't burn.  In other words, I wasn't sure whether ImgBurn actually did exclude DVD-ROM drives from the list of Write target devices.  Makes sense that it would, but I wasn't certain.

Those drives do work with imgburn as source (eg to make an issue of a disc), they'll show up there. But not as a target when you try to both a DVD. It will show up for do l burning a CD.
