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?

You have hit on one of the primary suspects, a dirty DVD drive. But usually your would notice skipping or hesitation when playing DVDs and possibly CDs as well. Still, never hurts to run a cleaner. I use the Scotch brand DVD/CD cleaner disk that needs no liquid but rather has the brushes. I got it at CompUSA for about $10.
You may also be experiencing a bad batch of disks if all the spindles are the same brand bought at the same time. It might also be an incompatibility between your DVD burner and the disk manufacturer. Try buying a small 5 pack of a different brand from some other place and see if your have better results.
Please post comments with your progress and results.
You can only copy files to a blank disk by using programs like NERO or by using a re-writeable disk like DVD-RW which you can format and use it like a hard drive. You need also burner not an ordinary DVD or CD player.
This can be due to the reason that the certain cd roms cannot be read by your drive. please insert and check other brand cd roms...if they run then the cd rom u r using cannot be read by ur Cd.dvdw DVD drive
