Blank DvD Disc Reading Problem

My CD/DVD Drive all of a sudden started doing some weird stuff...
It's an LG Standard Drive shipped with an HP SR5160AN Desktop Comp, worked fine ever since I purchased said comp, until a day or so ago.
The Drive will read CD's, DVD's no worries. BUT, I place an empty DVD Disc into the drive, and when I try to burn anything, I am told there is no free space on the Disc. When I looked into it, it appears the Disc has 0 Bytes Free of 0 Bytes? These discs are all empty, but I went and bought a new set of a different brand... same problem. Blank CD's and DVD's are 'full', even though there's nothing on them, and they have a size of 0 bytes.
What is going on? There were no updates or anything ever changed since I last used it successfully to burn a DVD Image, then all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, it won't burn a thing ._.

Goto HP's website to the support section download the drivers and replace your current ones. If it still does not the drive has failed and needs replacement.

NO PC stated dang. laptop or desk?

why not upgrade it.?
get a new drive and new fresher OS.
windows 10
and a nice new blu-ray burner.
and move on.
or if this rig (PC)
is 2001 why not go to GOODWILL
and buy a 2010 PC< for like $25
and i bet it works 10x better.

kckaza -

Get a lens cleaning disc and run it following the instructions. You likely have dust or dirt on the lens which is making it difficult to read the blank DVDs. This is aq common problem that has a simple solution (They run about $10).

Starting at my computer... Right click on my computer icon.

Go to properties.

Then Hardware tab then go device manager. Right click on cdrom in device list. Select uninstall then reboot the computer. If this doesn't help replacing the unit will be necessary.

Blank dvd not readable


Do you have software capable of writing to a DVD?
Its no good having a drive that can read a DVD - that is all it can do without software. I suspect that is why it is chucking your disc out!

If you have no software then look on the net for some free stuff - plenty about, or buy Nero

Disc driver not reading discs


Can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. Use CD/DVD cleaning disk
3. Disk is recorded in higher speed than your driver can read (for instance reading speed is 16, but disk is recorded on 24).
4. DVD drive is damaged or not connected properly.
Good Luck

LG LS50 DVD/CD-RW DRIVE won't recognize blank dvd-r


Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.
