I have a LITE-ON DVDRW SHM-165P6S and could write to both DVD and CD previously. I wrote to a DVD +R some time back and could read it, but now suddenly I cannot. A friend copied that DVD+R to a DVD+RW but i still cannot read it - both discs are 'seen' as blank CDs. However a normal DVD (like a movie) is seen correctly and I can play it too. What has happened and how can I fix it? Thank you Andera

found on mine: tray opening mechanism is belt driven, while others are
gear driven, belt tends to stretch with time and slips on motor pulley,
gears do not. Just cheap built. Remedy= Belt can be removed from front with open
tray, soaked in rubber rejuvenation liquid for few seconds, cleaned and
dried, re- installed on pulley. It works now, but for how long, I have no idea.
Where are you looking to recognize the disks? if it is in my computer in Windows it would most likely be because the Roxio software was what was recognizing the disks. generally Windows does not do a very good job of recognizing blank disks. I would look at the disk information in your current CD burning software and see what that says.
