    I am quite sure this is not the problem.My burning programmes will just not recognise that I have a disc in the drve

  • brianpage60 Sep 09, 2010

    Thanks to each but I have solved this problem myself.I simply went into my drivers and deleted.I then reinstalled and the DVD burner is now working fine again.Unfortuneately none of the suggestions given to me were of use.

Brian, Please clean the read/write head of the drive. it may be dirty. That is why it does not detect a disc in the drive Use a soft moist cloth or tissue to clean it.

It is extremly possible that the laser assembly is dying or dirty.
The beam to burn a CD is more (wider) than that for DVD.

First off try a lens cleaner but be aware these are not always succesful and avoid any abrasive types of lens cleaner as that will make theproblem worse.

If that faile you are looking at replacing the laser assembly or replace the whole drive.
The cost difference is not always worth the laser assembly approach and quite often a new one is a better path

    Being able to recognise the disc does not mean the device is OK.



    I have quite a stack of drives here that show the exact same type of issues yours does and only a couple of them worked after cleaning and the rest are "half dead" in that I can see a disc is inserted and read CD rom discs but not read DVD discs or burn them.



    Whilst I bow to new findings I do submit that this is the case with your issue

My Ge Force will burn audio but not DVD.I have tried with Ashampoo,Record Now and Express Burner.The burning programme tells me there is no disc in drive


Hi Brian.

I think you are a little confused.

Your GeForce FX 5500 is a graphics card
All this does is allow you to see your desktop on a monitor and play some games.

For burning discs you need a cd/dvd burner. This is a cd/dvd drive that you can use to read and write cd's and dvd's

You say that your program is telling you that there is no disc in the drive. (Your CD/DVD burner drive)
You can burn audio discs so this tells me you know that much and you have blank cd's so my two things I need to tell you are these..

1. To make a DVD or Burn a DVD you need a BLANK DVD disc in your burning drive. Maybe you have mistakenly placed a CD in the drive instead?
2. Your Burner drive may not burn DVD's only CD's?

Check on the door to the drive that opens to allow you to place discs into it. It should say something like DVD multi recorder or Compact Disc re-writeable. If it does not say DVD on it anywhere your drive is not capable of burning DVD movies and therefore you will need to purchase another burner.

I hope this helps?
