Question about Philips (DN4S2S05F/17) (5 Pack) (DN4S2S05F17) DVD-RW Storage Media
To whom it may concern,
I've a problem with my Philips DVD+-RW DVD8631. It will not recgonize blank DVDs, but will play regular DVDs, CDs and will burn blank CDs. I've tried many times over to update the drivers and anything I can think of on the software side. I've also gone and deleted any and all burning software that may have caused a problem and reinstalled only the OEM installed Cyberlink PowerDVD and DVDShrink and DVD Decrypter. These ones have been on my computer for a while so I know they aren't the cause of the issue. The drive reads blank DVDs as CDs with 0 bytes free and 0 bytes used. I've even tried to find a solution on www.philis.com and all I got was another link to the same driver I've installed over and over. Is there anything else I can do short of buying a new drive? Thanks.
Okay guys here's your solution use memorex dvd-r disc in these drives these are the most compatable disc out there.
