DVD Writer does not recognize CD

  1. Jul 23, 2006 #1
    Recently, my DVD writer can no longer recognize when a blank CD is inserted. However, it can still burn DVDs. Anyone know what's going on? I don't know the brand. I tried updating the drivers but apparantly I have the most recent one.

    same prob. here

    i encountered the smae problem as u did.in my case dvd rom could not read or burn anything not even cds. well u may get only replacement for it cos technicians in india don't know the repair work. i was told by a repairer that if u stop using one of these discs for quite a long time, the cable loses its bla bla bla. so he suggested that we must regularly insert dvds or cds. whether required or not
