CD-DVD DRIVE PROBLEMS

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have a Sony VAIO desktop with Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-106D drive with 5.1.2535.0 driver.

I can play DVDs and CDs and write to regular blank CDs, but cannot get it to recognize either blank DVDs or blank CD-RW disks.

Note that my other Sony VAIO laptop has same problem.

They are both running WinXP.

Thx for any help.

Bob

Older versions of nero use to have a problem like this with this drive. Updating nero sorted it. Could try updating firmware.

well im guessing he's using the xp burning program... which is complete crap. nero would at least say something about the disk.

Am using the CD Wizard? ...... but note that don't even have to get to this stage. When look at E Drive when have one of these 2 things (blank DVD or blank CD-RW) in, and click on Properties, does not show any info, while with regular CD or DVD in, properties gives me info.

It does not show any size info - in other words, just like a CD/DVD was not inserted!
