    I dont have the same model burner, but I have the same problem with cd, dvd, and double layer. It used to work. After a while it would keep getting burn errors when finalizing the disc, then it occasionally didn`t detect a blank disk in the drive. Now It doesn`t detect blank discs at all. It is still fully functional as a read driv, but thats all.

Try 3 things. ONE AT A TIME. #1 change your burn speed to a slower setting some dvd's will not burn as fast as they say on box.

#2.update firm ware for burner go to manufacturer's web site for your brand of dvds being used.

#3 change brand of DVD used. there are 3 major manufactures for almost all dvds and cd. The people who make disc for Sony and the other 2 companies that make everybody elses. (ie TDK,Memorex, etc....)

Dell PC unable to read blank discs


There is a easy solution! Buy a new DVD burner...

I went through 2 DVD burners in one year (I bought a really cheap "mad dog" DVD burner...never again to say the least). I saw a "insert disc", even though there was already a disc in the burner, and thought "I'm not paying for a new burner, I'll fix this one...". I eventually got it to work again, but all that I got was corrupt disc after corrupt disc.

I'll bet that it still reads CD's fine doesn't it? Yeah? Well then, trust me, buy a new one. It'll save you time, money (you won't waste all those DVD/CD's), headaches, moments of depression, anxiety, frustration, and your sanity.

Except no substitutes of a solution. Don't go through what I did...

I also suggest ccleaner (freeware) from filehippo.com to clean out the system and not only run the "Analyze/Clean", but also verify "Tools/Startup" and uncheck ANY program that you are unsure of.

Nero cannot burn DVD inserted in my LG GSA-H55N DVD-RAM rewriter


Have you tried other discs, or just that one? It might be that the disc you've inserted already has something written on it, and you can't burn a DVD-R twice. From the error message you're getting, that would be my guess.

Hp 1040e dvd writer plays cd's but not dvd's. Can't record DVD - keeps asking for blank disc when it's already inserted


What brand DVD's are you using? Its best to use the same brand discs as your burner. This is because in the design and testing stage they are using their own brand of discs to test them. Some other brand discs may be thicker or thinner and not read correctly. The "blank" disc may have already have been written on. Make sure the Nero software is loaded on your computer that came with it.

VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE


You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.

The above internal burner not picking up blanck dvd-r


strictly speaking this is the correct response from your writer, as the disk "is" blank. Your DVD burning software, Like cloneDVD or Nero, should recognise the "blank" and then allow you to burn your disk image. you need to check that your DVD/CD authoring software is installed correctly and updated for all the latest features.
