DVD writable media not recognized by drive... shows up as "Blank CD"

I'm using Windows XP Pro SP2, and when I try to use DVD+R or DVD-R, the media is detected as "Blank CD". If I try to copy files into the drive window, it gives a generic message "Error Encountered".

I went into device manager and removed the drive, then re-discovered it, but still doing the same thing...

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Clark

    I have the same problem. My drive shows my dvdr's as blank, ive checked it oin another computer and the dvd's working

    I see the same with my IBM laptop and Matshita DCD+RW. No burner can see the blank DVD placed in the drive. It seems that most of the computers where working and in probably because of an M.S update something has been corrupted.

    Please Help! it happens also with Vista business.

Lol a blank DVD cant be opened directly in Win xp, you need to use a DVD burning tool... for your laptop did you check you the DVD-ram reads cd's also?

Dell gx 260 there is no disc in the drive.

OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.

If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.

Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.

Why cant I write onto my blank DVD disk I have windows XP and DVD R in my DELL writable drive.Im trying to copy about 1 gig of JPEGS onto the disk. The disc is MAXELL 4.75 GB DVD R. Im using windows XP....

It doesn't matter what name or brand the disc is. All it matters that it is a writable disc. If you had aldready written previous files on that DVD disc and then it was compiled, it wont write again. When the computer requests to compile a disc, say no, otherwise you wont be able to write more data on the same disc. The same goes if you have selected a CD to burn. There are 3 ways to do so. Try copy and paste, drag and drop the file to the DVD icon or CD icon, or right click on the file to be burned and select 'Send to...' choose the DVD drive, (D:), see what happens.

Nlite Windows XP Pro SP2 not recognized

Dear,

You should use Nero 6 or above version. It is very easy to use.
Just create an image of original disc and then burn it on the blank disc.The copied disc will work fine, I am sure.
Please try it.....

Burning problem

Try different brand. Your Drive is a sensitive type and it only accepts some DVD-R brands. Also try DVD-RW disc. I had the same problem but not specifically the exact problem. My drive is cd writer only. Same problem, I just used diff CD-R brand like Imation and Philips and the burning works like a charm.

Hp 740e not reading blank dvd discs

Don't wanna sound like a Doomsayer but I think it has burned its last burn...

Try to clean it first, if it still doesn't work, then it is time for a new one.

Had a similar experience and we found out that the drive had conked out.
