Dvd re-writer will not read any blank discs

I have an external Freecom DVD-/+RW DVD Writer. It reads normal film dvds ok and cds with saved data on. but it will not read a blank dvd when i put on in to back up some files. it sees the disc as no free space and none used. its the same on other discs i have used and i have used both and - blank dvd's. i have also tried it on another computer and the same. it also will not read blank cd's.

    Hi, My dvd rewriter (internal) suddenly doesn't recognise the blank discs that I have been using. My program asks me to insert a blank disc and when I do so nothing happens, usually it will say.. blank disc in drive, but nothing.

    I have tried using different brands of discs just in case the discs I got were suddenly not compatable but the same thing happens.

    The blanks do not read in the drive that came with my pc either (dvd rom) but when I put a film in, it will recognise that a film is there.My rewriter tho will not recogise anything. Can anyone throw any light on this? Can it be fixed or has my rewriter had it? Please respond, xxHelenxx

If you have nothing on the cd then it won't read it cause there is nothing for it to read... so if you have a writing software that you can write the cd you can write the cd... only if there is something on the cd it will read......

    DVD burning problem


    if you have tried different dvd-r and dvd-rw discs, unfortunately it's a sign that your writer is failing to read the discs correctly, this normally happens when the writer is about to give up, although it may still write and read cd's but not dvd's
