DVD burner doesn't reconize burned music cd's only shows them as blank disc

I have a Dell XPS M1330 with a Matshita DVD + - RW UJ-857G ATA dual layer dvd burner. Somehow the oem firmware isn't there only windows and now it won't play burned music disc only shows them as blank cd's. I deleted the device in device manager and reinstalled. Restarted the computer and nothing, I found a thread about deleting upper and lower filters which I also tried and still not working. Any help?

    Almost forgot another question. Can the drive play a factory-produced audio CD?

  • ultimitloozr May 11, 2010

    First a comment: the firmware IS there. It has to be because it is a chip - either a PROM or, more likely, an EEPROM - that is on the controller board of the drive itself. Without it the drive would not work at all.

    Now, the questions: Was this disk burned on the same computer or a different one? If it was burned on another machine, was it recorded as a multi-session disc? Some drives don't close sessions properly and it makes it so that some other drives cannot read them later.

Have you tried to play burned music disc with other laptop? if it was able to play there then i suspected your dvd-rom drive is faulty.

To confirm, try playing different cds from your machine and check if it was able to read it.

I have a dell xps m1530 and my matshita dvd rw UJ-875S does not want to burn my music onto my cdr

Hi there,

Go to this site and run Microsoft's free FixIt CD Utility.

It doesn't always solve the problem, but it often does.
