For a barcode scanner?
The only ones I've seen with disks use floppies, so try using a cleaning disk in the drive, if that doesn't work, you may need to replace the floppy drive.

It's also possible you have 1.44MB floppies and the scanner only recognises 720K, but the drive itself sees the 1.44MB.

Simple fix for that is to use string scotch tape or a strip of packing tape to cover the hole ACROSS from the write protect hole (write protect hole usuaullyhas a slider in it, otherwise they are the same size hole)

My TSST Corp DVD+RW does not recognize MAXELL DVD+RW single sided 4x4.7gb 120 min disk(s) WHY?


Does it recognise other make disks?
A DVD reader/writer may not recognise a blank disk for two main reasons;

The disk is not "prepared" or formatted for use,
or
The computer has been instructed not to "auto run" new disks.

Either way, there is no other reason why it won't see a blank disk.
If the disks have been written on by another computer and not "finalised" your drive might not be able to utilise anything that is on it.
I hope that answers your question.

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.
