Well it seems that your system is not able to detect the cd in the system so you must get the lense cleaner to clean the lense of the computer.

My Samsung laptop model no. is R418. When I insert any disk in the DVD drive, and double click on it it shows a blank screen without any files. It is recognising the cds and also running the auto play but...


You typically get a read error from the operation system if there is a problem reading the disk, so it is likely that the DVD really is blank. Try gently washing and drying (with soft tissue not heat) the DVD. Then try another computer. If it reads the data, the burn a new DVD.

Buy a new CD drive

-When the reading laser goes out on a CD drive, this is the error it gives. The motor to open and close still works, the computer just isn't able to read the CD.

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.

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.

Please insert a disk into drive


You can only copy files to a blank disk by using programs like NERO or by using a re-writeable disk like DVD-RW which you can format and use it like a hard drive. You need also burner not an ordinary DVD or CD player.
