Question about Sony (VGPDRWBX1) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
I have a Sony Vaio with the above DVD burner. Until a few days ago all was fine but now it won't recognise a new DVD, so I can't burn anything. When I input a new DVD, the computer seems to think that it is a CD (the standard window pops up, asking me what to do with this CD) but "my computer" shows no available space etc. I have tried at least 10 DVDs out of the same batch. I am most definitely not a computer expert, so I have no idea what to do next. Help!
If those are all the same batch and brand of dvd, try them in another computer and/or try a different brand in yours.
What software are you using for burning?

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps you
