Hi, Some of the burner drives require only certain media. Make sure that your burner does actually use the - media or the + media.

This may be why the media is not being recognised.

Let us know how you go,

My burner don't recognize the blank disc

Good day,

One of the reasons why a CD drive won't recognise a disc is if d disc is corrupt or not good again. I'll suggest that you buy another one and see if the cd drive will see it. If not, try putting a non-empty disc (either a movie disc) and see if it works. If it doesn't, then d burner might have a little problem.
But if it does work, please feel free to reply.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My Philips DVD8421 burner will not recognize a blank DRD-R disc.

Ok, the reason is quite simple. The Philips DVD8421 does not recognise the DVD-R format.Not all DVD/CD burners read all discs. It does recognise DVD+R though. So all you need to do is use these discs instead. This should solve your problem.

Hope that helps.

Drive won't recognize discs

the blank media must be compatible with the burner drive that you're using... meaning if the drive is for CD-R you can only use CD-R blanks not CD+R. if the drive is CD-/+R then you can use either CD-R or CD+R

Sounds like an issue with the drive. Is your computer still under warranty? If so then I would call dell and get it replaced. If not, then I would replace it myself.
