Question about Philips (JR24CDRW99) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

1 Answer

My Philips DVD8421 burner will not recognize a blank DRD-R disc.

I have been trying to burn a photo story for some relatives as a Christmas present. My burner will not recognize a blank disc. I have attempted to use both "Roxio DVD Builder" and "Photo DVD Maker Pro" without success.

I can put a commercial DVD disc in or one I had previously written to, and it reads/plays it fine.

Any clues as to how I can rememdy this problem?

    Many thanks Timothy. If anyone needs 20 DVD-R discs, you can have them, FoC. Just pay the shipping.

    What type of blank disc are you using, i.e DVD-R, DVD+R or DVD-RAM?

Ok, the reason is quite simple. The Philips DVD8421 does not recognise the DVD-R format.Not all DVD/CD burners read all discs. It does recognise DVD+R though. So all you need to do is use these discs instead. This should solve your problem.

Hope that helps.

My cd-r/dvd-r rw, will not recognize blank discs. When it does recognize the disc, it burns at most two audio tracks and finalizes the cd. Then giving me an error message saying disk may be dirty or...


I suggest you try a better program. It is possible there is something wrong with your drive, but this sounds more like a silly software problem. If you are SURE you have a drive capable of burning, then try this free program. I have a blu ray player, it stopped working with most bluray discs. Found that I needed to update the firmware, but my Windows software couldn't burn an .iso disc. This software can do anything you need. http://cdburnerxp.se/download.php

It is free and works beautifully. I was able to download the program, burn an .iso disc and update my bluray player in minutes.

Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.
