    I have the same problem.  When I insert a blank DVD into the DVD drive it thinks it is a blank CD.

To solve this problem you need a third party burning software. Windows XP does not include the ability to properly recognize DVD's when you drag and drop and sees it as CDRW. When you bought your DVD, there may have been a disk with a version of Nero on it. It works well but there are also other third party software apps that will do as well. Even some free ones. Hope this helps.

You got a bad laser in the drive not the laser the reads the laser that writes and this does generally happen when a dvd ram drive goes. Recommend buying a new drive as a replacment laser is upwards of $90 bucks, thanks for using fixya please do accept and rate.

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine


your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou
