I bought these disks brand new at Big Lots. So far, all of them appear to be full, but I haven't used them yet! When I put them in my DVD drive, my computer recognizes them as CDs, not DVDs and it shows they are completely full, yet have 0 bytes in them. What is going on here?

i did everyting today to fix this. bought new dvds, name brands different, tried finding codes, called the number. trust me. try this. clean it. thats All i did. cleaned it with a dvd cd cleaning disc, the one with two little brushes on it, nothing special, ran it until i heard the beep, popped my dvd in, they all worked. everyone, im still recording. i ran it about four times. now, if you tried to burn a dvd, and got the error, throw that dvd away. because i tried about ten dvds. after i fixed it, THOSE dvds were no longer usable. dont know why. hope this works.
I have used my Sony GX300 for a couple of years and love it. I prefer +R blanks. The only occasional problem is the media brand. It will not record Fuji 16X, but will record Fuji 4X, which are rare nowadays. I have used TDK 16X with success, but this week bought TDK "lightscribe" blanks, and the GX300 would not record with them.
Sony should provide an upgrade download for the GX300 but does not. On the internet I have been unable to find a list of suitable brands for this DVD recorder, so I have to take risks when shopping. Fortunately, all blanks can be used for my computer so my money is not really wasted.
It's October, 2009 and in Toronto there has been a shortage of DVD blanks for months. I've been told there will be lots available in December.
The JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder / VCR Combo does not suppport DVD+R, only DVD-R, -RW etc.
At least mine only supports these formats, as when I first bought mine, I got some blank DVD's they were DVD+R.
I recorded a movie onto one on my PC, then tried playing it in the JVC unit... no go!
Instruction manual (available for D/load online) proved to me that I could not play +R disks!!
Owing to the fact that it works with the original discs, the set is probably ok. BUT it's not very compatible with the blank discs you've purchased. You'll have to experiment with various brands until you find those that work. I find my Cyberhome deck is not only particular with some brands, but with different batches of the same brand disc. Ask some of the big box stores that sell blanks and you'll find they get a lot of returns for the same reason, they don't work in the customer's machine. Bush doesn't sound very competent in the customer support dept, so I would look to replace your Bush recorder with something more main line, and probably more expensive and compatible. Oh, and make sure you are getting the same type of disc- DVD-R and DVD+R are not the same.
There are two common causes for these kinds of problems: software doesn't match, or media doesn't match. also, there a lack of info in here. is drive capable of reading dvd's when it is used for other purposes?
1. are you sure you got the right firmware? check for updates on brand site or on google.
2. try using several types of media from diffrent brands. some drives cannot read specific media (for instance, sony drivers sometimes having trouble with JVC media).
3. the least common, but worst option by far is a hardware problem. if drive is bad, you should try and replace it in case your warrenty didnt expire.
