DVD-R/RW playing/burning only CD's

I've a problem with my Philips DVD+-RW DVD8631. It will not recgonize blank DVDs, but will play regular DVDs, CDs and will burn blank CDs. I've tried many times over to update the drivers and anything I can think of on the software side. I've also gone and deleted any and all burning software that may have caused a problem and reinstalled only the OEM installed Cyberlink PowerDVD and DVDShrink and DVD Decrypter. These ones have been on my computer for a while so I know they aren't the cause of the issue. The drive reads blank DVDs as CDs with 0 bytes free and 0 bytes used. I've even tried to find a solution on www.philis.com and all I got was another link to the same driver I've installed over and over. Is there anything else I can do short of buying a new drive? Thanks.

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

Reads cds and dvds, but won't burn to them


Your drive can only burn CDs, not DVDs. To burn CDs you need to purchase a blank CD-R or CD-RW at a local computer store. You can burn a CD-R only once but a CD-RW can erased and written upon many time.
Try Nero software for burning.

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.

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.
