You're starting to experince laser pick up failure, maybe starting to weakened. Try using a cleaner first and it could be dirty nor with carbon deposits. If still the same then i dont know of any shop repairing DVD drives, it will be up for replacement only.

Target disc not empty


Target disc ( this is what you've selected to burn TO) is not empty(is not a blank disc). You should try a different blank disk, or else you have your source and destination backwards.

Hi! I inserted a burned dvd r into my Mac but it's not reading it. The message You've inserted a blank CD pops out. I tried using a PC but it can't open it either, it says there's an error...


there are a few reasons why

1.) the formatting of the disk may be formatter for a PC and NOT a MAC
2.) after burning, this dvd was never "closed"
3.) You burned a coaster

good luck

My HP DVD 740 won't recognize blank CDs


Sounds like the lens is dirty. Run a cd cleaner through the drive. That should take care of it.

Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.

Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.

Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.

Won't burn CD-r or DVD-R


Hi,
make sure that your program that is setup to record. i.e nero-img burn et,c. is set to look at the drive D:- Or E:- whichever letter your drive is assigned by the computer.
Also try using a different Blank-media. if any disk has failed a full write, without finalizing Or creating the Table Of Contents. It will read as Empty Or Blank. you can see This By looking carefully at the underside of the Disk, to see whether it has been burned by the laset. ( Towards The Centre ) if the Dye is darker on the inner-edge, then this is possible.
You can also try using a different Packet writing software, or re-install the program.
Hope this helps.

NEC DVD-RW 16x DL


If you switched to a different brand of DVD's try using the brand you used before. DVD burners are tested with certain brands of DVD's and sometimes the brands that aren't on that list don't work.
