There are generally two reasons why thi happens - the dvd player is damaged or the cable is faulty - if you are able to open the machine and replace/check the cable is situated correctly it may fix the problem - if not , and the machine is under warranty - then get the dvd replaced - if not under warranty then a new drive is in order - check your local comp store for one - you shouldnt pay more that 60$ for a decent one.

Sony vgn a-150 not recognizing empty dvd media of any kind, but will read it.


You could try this tool for resetting your DVD-Rom. If this does not work then it could be you need a new Optical burner.

Why does my lenovo insist on my having a cd rom when i have a dvd writer installed? how do I fix it so that computer recoognizes it?


I have the same situation. My computer has a
DVD-RW/CD-RW installed yet when it is empty, the computer simply recognizes it as a CD drive. However, it will automatically recognize any DVD I place in the drive. Even a blank DVD-R. So it's not really a problem for me.

Also, if you type in DEVICE MANAGER in your windows search area, it will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals. I have Windows Vista 64 bit and in device manager it does recognize it as an ATAPI DVD under "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES".

I haven't seen a DVD burner yet that won't play or write cd's; maybe this is standard.

I wouldn't worry about it as long as it performs the functions (play/burn DVD's?)

Hope this helps.8a17955.jpgb9e40e6.jpg

I'm using lenovo y500 series 4EQ laptop/vista home basic.however my DVD drive (matshita DVD-RAM-UJ-85JS) doesnt recognize dvds, blank DVDs in certain but it recognizes cds that came with the service pack


It may be necessary to upgrade the "firmware" (software residing inside the DVD unit) to recognize the "newest" of blank DVD media.

Each "blank" disk has an identifier electronically written onto the disk -- if the firmware does not recognize that identifier, it needs to be upgraded in order to recognize it.

Check Toshiba's "support" web-site for a firmware update.

Jpeg image as background


I had the same thing happen to me. When the thumbdrive is in, make sure the source that is selected is the tuner, preferably. Then go to the monitor setup in the preferences and change the background that way. If it doesnt leave me a message.

Sounds like bad media to me. Have you tried a more expensive blank like Memorex?
