Dvd-rw drive malfunctioning

My dvd-rw drive cannot load or read any type of disk except a dvd disk. even a blank cd-r or dvd-r wont load, so i cant burn any disk also. even if there's a blank disk on the drive, while im trying to burn the disk using nero, the computer will prompt me to "insert a blank disk on the drive". i've tried updating the drive's driver, system restoring my system, updating the burning software i used (nero) but none of this solved the problem. please help!

    Having the exact same problem. I tried updating Firmware drivers, found a few versions (YSOZ being the latest) to no avail and I don't still have the CD that came with the internal burner. As far as checking the lens I'm not sure what all that entails and don't want to make matters worse .. is it a simple procedure? Also using NERO 7.10.1 and it reads DVDs but nothing else, as OP stated it just says 'insert disk' or 'spins' a CD without reading it. Would DLing a different burn software help or any other suggestions?

This is a long shot but I had similar trouble with another brand of drive. With these symptoms I assumed the lens would not go to its "home position". If you know what you are doing you can remove the covers and check to make syure the lens moves freely. Good luck and let me know....MM85

Please Check :-
1) Whether U R using the Proper NERO. I want to mean, try installing the NERO which was provided with the DVD-RW+ Drive.
2) Check whether there is a Firmware Upgrade available for your DVD-RW+ Drive with the help of provided CD/DVD and a compatible Software.

I have a HT-DT-ST- RW/DVD GCC 4480B it will burn cd-r but it wont even read dvd-r I just want to burn dvd-r but it wont even read blank one


> CD-RW / DVD-ROM

Sorry, but this device is not a DVD-writer.

This device _should_ read (non-blank) DVD media.
If it does not, then the cheapest solution is to spend $40
to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

It can't read or burn any data on any empty disks (CD-Rom/DVD)! but it can read any other written disks like: programs , Movies , audio disks , data disks just when I put a blank or Empty disk it seems...


Some CD burners are either "+" or "-" or both "+ -".

That said you will have to check what type of burner you have. Example, you cannot stick a "+" blank cd into a "-" burner, and visa versa.

However, if your cd burner can read and burn both types, you should be okay.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

Won't recognize blank dvd


Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
Good Luck

My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd and dvd_rw discs


Check the blank disks in another computer if you can in case they are damaged and causing a fatal error when your computer tries to read them, and the reboot.

Are you sure it's SCSI and not SATA as scsi isn't very common these days especially on desktop type PC's? Where are you looking to see if the driver is correct?
If the drive is displaying and can be accessed from your operating system then it should be working fine.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
