SOURCE: Please Insert disk?
Hi Tool4theman, I have a CD/DVD r/w drive and it only says NEC DVD +RW. That is just the text the manufacturer has embedded in the device, not the results of any diagnostics. You've mentioned what program you are playing DVDs with but what are you playing your audio CDs with and are they commercial audio CDs? Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Its meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives in the past. When prompted for a blank disk us a CD. http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know how it goes and don't forget to rate the posting.

they may need to be formated first, but you will need to refer to your software, as to how it is done.

This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.

First, check to make sure that your DVD burner accepts DVD-R media. You do this by checking the hardware specifications of the manufacturer. Some DVD burners are only made for DVD+R.
If your DVD burner is made to accept DVD-R media, then try a different brand of DVD-R's and see if the burner recognizes the DVD media.
Sometimes a firmware upgrade will solve the problem and there are some companies which are even clever enough to let geeks copy the boot blocks of the CD's or DVD's and add them to the firmware themselves.
I've had all sorts of problems with DVD's before, most of them were solved when checking the specifications and then asking about the media. I even had DVD's that simply weren't correctly manufactured; the crystalline structure wasn't functioning. There were even areas where I could see through the media. I brought them back to the store I bought them from and the company that made them sent me a letter of apology with 2 replacements for the 1 that I bought.

To solve this problem you need a third party burning software. Windows XP does not include the ability to properly recognize DVD's when you drag and drop and sees it as CDRW. When you bought your DVD, there may have been a disk with a version of Nero on it. It works well but there are also other third party software apps that will do as well. Even some free ones. Hope this helps.
