Annoying Problem with MD-16XDVD9A4

Whenever I insert a blank dvd it changes from a DVD-RW drive to a CD drive and tells me I have inserted a blank CD. If I try to burn anything with any program it will only let me burn approx. 700MB of data. I have flashed the drive with the new firmware update and updated windows XP x64 with the latest updates but I am still having problems. I've had this drive for over a year and never had a single problem with it until now. Another thing....I have tried multiple disks from different packages with no luck. All of these disks previous had no problems working with this drive. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled this drive with the latest drivers with no luck. Thanks in advance.

This is a now issue with XP when you install a DVD/CD-it doesn't always happen but when it does there is nothing that can be done about it-I went as high as tier 3 support at MS and tried regediting, mapping, even a complete reinstall-nothing helped-untill I bought a cheep CD RW and installed it as anotuerh dirve. Then I had a DVD RW, and a CD RW. Problem solved

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


Hi,

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,

This is a common problem. RW DVD are different types. You need to read what type of RW DVD you need there will be either a nimber, leter or symbol at the end of where it says RW DVD or DVD RW and you CANNOT use just any disc.

Do you have Windows XP? If so XP does not burn DVD's on its own it requires third party software.
A simple Google search will find free software for you.
I personaly like burn4free it can be found here.

DVD-RW Name Changes When Blank DVD Inserted


p3, Did you try burning the DVD and it failed? You should try upgrading the firmware on DVD drive. http://www.samsung.com/support/productsupport/download/Model_Select.aspx?type=ODD+Products&typecode=300400&subtype=DVD+Writer&subtypecode=300405&model=TS-H552U&filetype=FM&language= Or, your just interested why Windows is calling your expensive DVD burner a measley CD Drive? Your Burner is an all-in-one.(I think) It plays(and burns) cd's and dvd's. Whatever program you use to burn has not informed Windows of its true intentions yet...Which is to burn a dvd or a cd. It doesn't know what you are burning until something tells it to. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
