Question about CD & DVD Burners

1 Answer

My burner does not recognize a new cd-r disc

I just bought a new 50 pk of Sony CD-R disks and none of them are recognized by Windows Media Player. Why? i have an lg cd-rw, sometime ago it stopped recognizing blank cd's. i used an antivirus software on it and it solved the problem. Recently the problem resurfaced, i tried to remove it like before, no luck. I formatted the hdd and reinstalled windows, still no luck. i changed the ide cable & it didn't work. i am confused because i also have a samsung cd-r on the same computer & it will also not acknowledge the presence of the empty cd. i use nero 8 burner.

    I have the same device, I have installed the Nero 8, but I use VISTA and I cannot get the device to work. I can install Nero with the recent driver update, but now my device will not read, write or do anything. There were error codes in the device manager with no solution.

    I have done all the obvious, tried the less than obvious and now I'm absolutely beside myself. The Nero fix totally messed up not only this external drive, but also my computer internal DVD/CD RW.

Ok people. First it would be an idea to use a CD/DVD lens cleaner, and try again. If you are running any 3rd party software/drivers like deamon tools, uninstall them and try again.

I have used Nero 6, 7 and I now use 8. I run XP SP3 on my desktop, and Vista SP1 on my laptop, and I have never found this problem with Nero.

You may need to uninstall the drive and re-install it. Also update the firmware for the drive.

Also, could you tell me what LG CD/RW you are using, please

Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's, burns CD's, but will not recognize blank DVD's. Sony support page states: 4X DVD-RW Media Compatibility Notice Please Note: 4X DVD-RW media is not...


Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

My crx230e will read but wont write. i went to properties it said this device is working properly. i put in a new blank disk and it says insert disk ! please help thanx dan


Often in an attempt to bargain shop we settle for the off brand of CD selections. Most of the time any CD will do , but in some cases, the drive just wont recognize the disc as burnable media. This may be the case in the problem your having.

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...


The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

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.

Not recognizing disc in D drive


Hi, well the short answer is NO. You cannot use DVD's in a CD Writer at all. So the simple answer is to get some CD-R and copy the files to them. OR get a Combo DVD/CD writer and install that as well.. and then you can use both..
