DVD/CD burner major problem

Out of the blue the DVD burner I've been using is no longer recognizing my new blank DVD's as DVD's, but as CD's only. It says it's an DVD drive at My Computer, but as soon as I put in a blank DVD, the icon changes to CD. Like I said, just started doing this. I actually bout a new one. The one from Nexxtech thinking maybe the old drive was the problem. Nope. Still same problem. On a brand new drive. Please help. There has to be a logical reason hopefully solution for this. Thanks so much in advance.

Blank cd's are not recognized by the Dell Inspiron cd burner


I would first try removing the device in the control panel, system, device manager and then reinstalling the driver. There may be a problem caused by a windows update. In general CD drives rarely go bad. If the CD works say for a music CD then it should work for blank cd. You may also want to check the CD type. If you accidentally used a DVD, that won't work and in some of the older CD drives, they may not handle every type of CD format.

Good Luck

Hi my dvd burner doesn't recognize my virgin disks


Sound like your cable that connects your burner to the motherboard. Try another cable, if you want to try another trouble shoot item, try connecting it behind the hard drive. Before you do set the jumper setting to slave on the burner and hook it up. That will help you to elimate a channel.

Recognizes DVD but doesn't recognize CD or CD-RW


Need more info about your problem to answer the question. What does "recognize" mean. Will it play a DVD or recognize a recordable, blank DVD? When you say "recognize" what software is recognizing, the OS or a burner software like Nero?

Drive won't recognize discs


the blank media must be compatible with the burner drive that you're using... meaning if the drive is for CD-R you can only use CD-R blanks not CD+R. if the drive is CD-/+R then you can use either CD-R or CD+R

Burner not recognizing blank cd-r


Hi, Some of the burner drives require only certain media. Make sure that your burner does actually use the - media or the + media.

This may be why the media is not being recognised.

Let us know how you go,

CD burner and possibly the CD Drive


Try a different blank CD, I have thrown out many new blank CD's and DVD"s, and for some reason one will work and the next won't.

CD burner


Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
