DLA (Drive Letter Access)

By galehickey2 ·
Purchased a HP DVD writer. Could someone tell me what purpose DLA serves? Made a DVD AND TRIED TO USE IT ON ANOTHER PC-WOULD NOT READ. Is there some steps to avoid this.

the benefit of having the dvd writer behave like a regular drive is so you can drag and drop, add and delete files using windows you have found the drawback of using rewritable mode is you may end up with incompatible dvd format. if other user doesn't have same type 'dvd dla drive overlay' software installed...check the settings in your cd burner software and set the write/burn options to 'most compatible' or 'close dvd' for dvd's you want to take somewhere else and use your dla software for daily backups or temp scratch area...
