Re: wont work

Sounds like there may be an issue with the drive itself. I would return it or replace it. As for windows...If this problem persists after a replacement, i would re install windows.

My cd/dvd burner on laptop wont recognise blank dvd

You said that you are using Windows XP. So, you have an older computer. Have you looked in the Device Manager and verified that it can read DVDs. Older system so you might have a CD only drive in there.
