My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd and dvd_rw discs

My dvd burner won't recognize blank dvd and dvd-rw' disks.
The computer reboots everytime I try to use either blank disk.
Reads my dvd and dvd-rw's fine.
The other thing I was wondering about is my Pioneer DVD-112 RW Dual is a SCSI, when I checked to see if the driver was correct could only find a page in Chinese.

Re: My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd and dvd_rw discs

Check the blank disks in another computer if you can in case they are damaged and causing a fatal error when your computer tries to read them, and the reboot.

Are you sure it's SCSI and not SATA as scsi isn't very common these days especially on desktop type PC's? Where are you looking to see if the driver is correct?
If the drive is displaying and can be accessed from your operating system then it should be working fine.

Cd/dvd burner will only recognise blank cd discs not blank dvd discs

Find some "older" blank DVD-R, or DVD+R, or DVD-RW disks, and insert them.

If they are recognized, then access LG's web-site,
and look for a downloadable "firmware update" for your model.

The newer firmware adds support for "newer" DVD media.

If all else fails, replace the CD/DVD device.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs

the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

NEC 3540A stopped reading blank DVD+DL

Hi JonPM
Burning a dual layer disk requires a functionality of the drive that is not used in the burning of normal disks. But before we consider that the drive may have a mechanical problem, lets clean out all your temporary garbage. Click on this link and download Cleanup 4.5.2 (

Instal and run the program. Once it has finished, reboot your computer and give burning onto the DL disk another try. Let me know what happens.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive

ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.

My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd discs

This is correct, as there is no TOC on a blank disk there is nothing to read. it is your writing software that identifies blank media when inserted, so you may wish to check your software is appropriate for your requirements Cheers :D

Hope you understand me :)

Not reading dvd r or rw as writable disk

It sounds like you are having issues with all DVD writable disks. From the specs I was able to find online about your DVD writer, DVD+RW discs may not be compatible with the the drive. Make sure you are using DVD-RW (note the minus instead of +). I think you might need to reinstall your DVD drivers. This should solve the issue.
