DVD burner does not recognize blank dvd inserted into the pc

Hello

Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
a process that solves the problem.

Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue
below.

Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and
contacts data with a pencil eraser.

Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.

===============================

Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
do it right.

Did you follow the Troubleshooting Guide for the reader who still does not work? There are
the entries in registry that the troubleshooter does not solve and those who "might" be the cause.

Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and
the correct registry entries for your car.

Here are the keys that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive
as there will be other subkeys in these keys. Do not forget to ask specific keys involved as well as
the parameters.

  • DVD burner does not recognize blank DVDs, but will recognize blank CD?

    I read through several similar messages, but none seem to have a solution to my problem.  I'm NOT very technically savvy, so this is as much I know:

    I have a Dimension E310

    It was supposed to come with a cd burner and a dvd burner combo.

    The reader says DVD R/RW RW DVD rewritable Compact Disk its Ultra Speed

    I was able to successfully burn CDs from itunes, but have not been able to burn any kind of video file.  In fact, when I insert a blank dvd in the drive, the computer does not recognize that everything is there.

    As I said, I'm not the person most computer savvy in the world.  I know how to work with my applications, but I know little about the way in which a computer is set up, so I apologize in advance if my question is ignorant, but I appreciate any help you can give.  Thank you in advance.

  • External CD burner does not recognize blank CD

    I have a new CD/DVD of Memorex burner that plays very well the prerecorded CD, but when I put in a blank CD - it seems that the blank CD is not recognized.  I've been reviewing newspaper and I see no evidence of an error.  The default current behavior when you insert a blank CD should be to open iTunes.  The focus to Itunes, but nothing else happens.  In addition, the CD does not appear in the Finder or on the desktop.  Once the CD is inserted into the optical drive, the unit eject button works like.  (It works well with prerecorded CD)  The only way to eject a blank CD's either reboot the computer or open the disk utility program and eject it from there.  Disk utility seems to be the only application that knows the blank CD - although he pointed out that the capacity is 0 KB and is unitialized, and partition map and the Smart function are indicated as 'not supported '. I tried with two different brands of CDR and get the same problem.

    Note that I have this problem on two new Imacs. The first is a machine of retina 27 "with 16 GB of RAM and hard drive with more than 2 TB of space remaining.  The other machine is an iMac 21 non-retinienne "with 8 GB of RAM and about 500 GB left on the hard drive.  Both machines are running El Capitan.

    It is the 2nd optical drive Memorex who gave me this problem.  I returned the 1st under warranty and has just received the replacement by mail unit this morning.  I contacted the technical support Apple, which were very nice. They took me through a SMC reset, but this has no effect.  Apart from them, they had no indication as to what was causing the problem.  I thought that I would try to write to you, geniuses.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

    -david

    Contact Memorex. I think that you have to go back and buy something else that actually works with a Mac. 2 units in a row with the same failure seems unlikely. It is more likely that they are simple not compatible.

  • Carpet * a DVD-RAM UJ-820 s does not recognize blank DVDs

    My laptop recently stopped recognizing blank, or I burned when I put them in the DVD player.
    The drive is a CARPET * a DVD-RAM UJ-820 s and it was working fine until last week when I tried to use the ASHAMPOO Burning software.

    He does not even recognize any MOVIE DVD I put in the drive, but it doesn't seem to have a problem with a music CD, I tried.

    Someone to help they could offer cause I'm running out of space and I really want to delete my files.

    Hello

    It looks a bit like a malfunction of the equipment. Maybe the lens of the drive can not calibrate correctly.

    Another clue;
    Have you tried to delete the upper and lower filter registry entries?

  • DVD burner does not recognize a DVD + RW

    I recently bought a DVD burner, after getting advice from Dell, to replace the original equipped DVD ROM (?) in my Dell Dimension 4500, so that I could record my video movies on DVD discs.

    The DVD burner, I was recommended is the ASUS DRW - 2014L 1 and this was provided by one of the "registered partners" from Dell. Unfortunately, this "Registered Partner" was useless, aggressive & dismissive to all after sales help or advice, where my request on this forum for assistance or advice.

    I had no trouble to record my videos on blank DVDs DVD - RW drives, but when you try to use DVD + RW discs (to use in my Sony Home DVD drive), the drive will not recognize them. Both the + RW & - RW discs are brand new Maxell disks, the RW - 1-2 x speed, single-sided 4.7 GB & the + RW 1-4 x speed, single-sided 4.7 GB.

    When there is no record of any type in the DVD drive, it shows in my computer as: DVD - RAM Drive (D). When a DVD - RW disc is inserted it changes to: CD Drive (D) with an icon of DVD - RW & this is also confirmed when I check on the properties.

    However, when you insert a DVD + RW and the DVD - RAM Drive (D) going to Drive (D) CD, as with the DVD - RW, no icon is displayed to indicate the drive is recognized, or it appears in the properties.

    As far as I can determine from the card, the ASUS DRW - 2014 L 1 is designed for both + & - DVD.

    I'd appreciate any help or advice... or am I just dumb?

    Thank you

    Tony
