No discs will read or write but windows says the device is working properly and it shows in my computer. Really having trouble figuring this problem out. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

They do wear out and break, sounds like an older model. A new DVD/CD burner can be bought for about £15.
You could try a different ide cable from the motherboard, and that the cables are connected properly.
Give that a try before you look for a new one

My cd recorder wont read blank cds help me please


Do as it asks, insert blank CD-Audio or CD-Music media.

Discs for recording
For recording, make sure to use special audio discs only.
These discs are marked with “Digital Audio” and the logos shown below.
There are two different types of audio discs for the use on this CD recorder:
– CD-Audio Recordable (CDR) discs
These discs can be recorded on once and
play in all standard CD players and CD
recorders, when they are finalized.
– CD-Audio ReWritable (CDRW) discs
These discs can be recorded on, erased and
re-recorded many times and play in CDRW
compatible CD players and CD recorders,
when they are finalized.
– All Philips CD players and CD recorders
with the sticker shown here are CDRW
compatible.
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of Philips audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only.
Note: Do not use a computer CDR or CDRW as recording will not work!

Go here and download the manual. You'll need it.

When you say it won't read DVDs, do you mean it won't play the DVD movies or it won't recognize a DVD disc when you put it in? If this is the CRW4012a as mentioned in the title, it is only a CD / CDRW drive not a DVD drive and it won't read DVDs. You'll need to purchase a DVD drive to do so.
