DVD-RW not recognising blank disk

Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111D This drive can read & write CDs and it will play DVDs, but will not recognize a blank DVD in the drive. I have updated, uninstalled, reinstalled, and rolled over the driver. I have used a DVD Identifier which recognizes there is a blank disk in the drive. It will prompt me to use a program on plug-n-play. I have tried both DVD-/+R. XP and my Roxio CD DVD creator do not recognize that there is a blank disk in the drive. What can I do next??? my driver(TEAC DVD+RW DV-W58E) can read blank cd but cannot read a blank dvd........what should i do.... please help me

My drive is listed as DVD-RW-DVR-lllD, but when I put a DVD disk into it, it changes automatic to CD-RW Drive E. How do I keep it as a DVD burner?


Try burning a disk, and taking the burnt disk to another computer, to see if the other computer recognizes the media as being a DVD disk.

DVD-RW not recognising blank disk


If the drive reads commercial CDs and DVDs and your software is configured correctly then I would suspect media or the drive itself. 1) Buy a good optical drive cleaning kit, clean and retest. 2) Buy some of the DVD media the manufacturer recommend and run tests with that since they will suspect the media as well. Also make sure you purchase media that is certified for the recording speed of your drive as well. Physically check both sides of the blank disk for gouges or scratches. When you run your test don?t assume every piece of media you have is good. I?ve had as many as three in a row fail to be recognized before I get a good one. Yep, this even happens with the top of the line brands on occasion. 3) Check your burning software and make sure you have the right drive set to be the target drive. If you have multiple optical drives on your PC don?t assume you know the correct drive letter, test it. Sometimes things change without you knowing?? 4) You can also try putting the drive in another PC (if you have that option) on the off chance something weird is going on with the cabling, power or controller. I also had a rash of users with this type of problem a few years ago. Most of the incidents were solved by using name brand media such as HP, Maxell or Fujifilm. They were buying the really cheap, no name brands from the campus store (paying premium prices to boot). Three other users actually had defective burners which took some time to isolate since the problems were sporadic. To be honest I actually had to fib to get the manufacturer to take them back but once the new drive was installed the problems never reappeared.
