While burning some files to disc using NERO v3.0; my NEC DVD+RW rom suddenly stopped reading disc.
I inserted brand new empty DVD-R disc, and still it continued to display message -- Disc can be read.
I then inserted disc both DVD-R and DVD-RW containing data, however, when I switch to My Computer and selected the drive containing my NEC DVD-RW to explore and display its contents, the window was blank.
When a disc is inserted the drive only lights up. Notably missing is the normal sound it makes each time a disc is inserted into it

Burning a dual layer disk requires a functionality of the drive that is not used in the burning of normal disks. But before we consider that the drive may have a mechanical problem, lets clean out all your temporary garbage. Click on this link and download Cleanup 4.5.2 (http://majorgeeks.com/CleanUp_d4895.html
Instal and run the program. Once it has finished, reboot your computer and give burning onto the DL disk another try. Let me know what happens.
Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.
Have you tried lowering the burn/erase speed? To begin, simply do what you need to do on the lowest speed, and then keep increasing until it gives the error again. This will most likely work. I had this problem and I burn now CDs at 16x.
