Have you tried using a different burning software?

When trying to copy a dvd disk, the drive shows the disk as 0 bytes free 0 bytes used. it does read sicks though, if they are dvd or normal cds.


this is most common problem when writer lens out or dump with dust. consult with hardware expert or if dvd r/w in under warranty then discuss it with customer care
