    Recognizes DVD but doesn't recognize CD or CD-RW


    Need more info about your problem to answer the question. What does "recognize" mean. Will it play a DVD or recognize a recordable, blank DVD? When you say "recognize" what software is recognizing, the OS or a burner software like Nero?

    DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


    the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

    Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


    If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

    Because your Configuration is :
    Read : CD / DVD
    Write : CD

    This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

    Dell Cd/Dvd burner not working properly


    I have a Dell XPS 400 that's about 3 years old. I have a DVD reader and a DVD-RW device. The former works - the latter takes forever to read discs (particularly DVD data discs.)

    I'm starting to think some of the generic DVD-RW devices Dell uses in its computers are prone to early failure. The DVD-RW in my XPS-400 was called "HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H21N".

    I'm going to try cleaning it, and then just swap it out for a better device.
