    I tried running a cleaner and i also tried using vertabim disks and the problem is still there. Though now when some data dvd's are being read and explorer opens with the layout minute latr the drive will try read the disk and ill get a not responding message in explorer. Yet on another pc the same disks are having no problem

    herers a more indepth look at my problem since i didnt post to muc info before.
    im having problems with the matshita dvd-am cd/dvd burner. At first it stopped detecting blank dvd's now it seems to be havign trouble reading data dvd's well, Alot of the time 95% it either reads them as blank or if it can read the layout it freezes trying to read any of the data in explorer. the brands of disk im using are tdk and vertabim which are working fine on my other pc's burner.

    Ive checked the driver and is reported that it isnt corrput and it working properlyive also checked for firmware updates and ive used disk tools on nero and most dvd's im getting an unknown disk media and hardware error.(tdk gold dvd-r) I also ran a disc lens cleaner twice through and still no luck.

    I dont get any error msg from windows though either the disk is coming up as blank/freezez when explorer opens and starts scanning the disk or after scanning for a little bit the drive automatically ejects the dvd.

    the drive is empty or the media format is unreadable was the reported error coming back to me and the birmomg software nero says the disks are unkown or there is none inserted when i run disk info tools.

    Just to double check ive deleted and reinstalled the driver, and i tried booting into safemode to see if it was a software conflict and no such luck there.

    im getting Hardware error when i use disk info tools in nero

    when i try to burn i get these errors:
    Error Code: 1003 (or 1004) (from nero when i try to burn)

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).

Drive cant write any disc

If the unit was working ok and suddenly the unit stop to read the blank disk, the problem could be related to a dirty lector (need to clean) or unit firmware (need to be updated)
In that case you can update your firmware here:


1) You have to use a blank "recordable disk" to allow your drive write a disk
2) Not all disks are compatible
3) Try differents brand
4) Clean your drive lector
5) Update your firmware
