When I insert blank DVD disc into DVD/CD-RW, and click it say insert the disc?


My first test would be to determine if the blank DVD is faulty. Try using a different brand of DVD and see if you get the same error. My experience tells me that your combo drive is faulty however. It is possible for a combo drive to read a CD but not a DVD. I would replace the combo drive with a DVD writer as they are not too expensive.

Best wishes,

We have LG DVD Combo Drive in our Desk Top PC where in Drive can Play CD but can not Play DOV or can not dispay contents on any DVD Inserted. Please Help Thanks Krishna Bikes Pvt Ltd.

In this case the laser for the dvd has died. This can't be fixed, you must replace the entire drive - a new dvd-rw will cost you less than $30.

Target drive is not working

on blank cd's or dvd is nothing to read, With burner software like Nero you can write data or music or other content (burning it) on the cd/dvd. Does this answer your question?

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.

Won't burn CD-r or DVD-R

make sure that your program that is setup to record. i.e nero-img burn et,c. is set to look at the drive D:- Or E:- whichever letter your drive is assigned by the computer.
Also try using a different Blank-media. if any disk has failed a full write, without finalizing Or creating the Table Of Contents. It will read as Empty Or Blank. you can see This By looking carefully at the underside of the Disk, to see whether it has been burned by the laset. ( Towards The Centre ) if the Dye is darker on the inner-edge, then this is possible.
You can also try using a different Packet writing software, or re-install the program.
Hope this helps.

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.
