Blank DVD Causes PC Reboot

Samsung SH-S182D DVD writer causes a PC reboot when I put a blank DVD+R in. It reads disks with data on with no problems. In fact if you reboot the PC a few times with a blank disk in the DVD writer you can eventually get a clean boot and then write to the blank disk.

    Thanks for the prompt response. I tried moving the drive to the other IDE and the problem remained. I have now contacted Samsung and they are going to replace/repair the drive.

If the pc reboots, then a driver or hardware fault is the cause, try uninstaling the dvd drive in device manager, then restart pc to install it again, or if you are able connect the dvd drive to another ide cable connector incase its a fault from the motherboards ide channel.

I put in a blank or recorded disk ,and the screen message is " unknown disk", and ejects the disk. I have used different blank disks,with the same result. Seems it is not " reading" the disk. Probable...


are you sure the drive is a read-writer? some optical drives are read only. If its not a writer and you put a blank in, that is what it would do.

If you put a real and recorded disk in(not a copy) and it says unknown disk, the eye is dirty. Cleaning the drive will be the next step.

DVD Writer cannot read a blank DVD


is this the first time you are trying to read a blank DVD on it?what program are you using in reading it?explorer will not automatically recognise blank DVD's but programs like NERO will.
Are you using a range of blank media you have used before?There is an issue with blank media in as much
how they are pressed/manufactured etc. To ensure compatibilty with the ever increasing range,an update to the burner is usually all that is needed, this is called firmware upgrade.
Are you using the correct format disks?
Most drives will read anything, and most burners are
now "all formats", but you may have a burner that is
either one or other, not both, thats to say, your burner
maybe only a "DVD+R/RW" take note of the "plus" sign whereas your blank media maybe "DVD-R/RW".

Read only cd-r not dvd


Have the same problem, it used to work and suddenly it wont do it anymore. I guess this is due to windows XP updates. Windows says that the driver is up to date and I also installed the latest firmware. I am using Nero 7 to burn. I had troubles before but somehow fixed it. Now when I insert a DVD (data) and try to open the dvd drive the whole computer hangs. The content shows for a moment before the computer freezes so it IS in the DVD.

CDRW/DVD Rom combo drive only reads CD's


the blue you are refering to is the dye on the disc, sometimes it's purple, normally the darker the better, but it's down to the individual writer and what disc it is compatable with, but your writers problem is all too common, as in my opionion the lasers that are being fitted in writers are of poorer quality than in the earlier days to enable the prices to become lower. You can try one thing, but it doesnt always work; go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays
