    Default wont read blank Dvds....

    so ive been burning a few months with absolutly no problems....I use DVDshrink and Taiyo Yuden dvds....issues started recently when a few of my burned dvds would hiccup a lil on my computer...but would play perfect on my PS2...figured my burner needed cleaning....so i used one of those discs on it and now..

    my reader will rip the dvd....go to the insert/check blank disc screen...and stall.....my burner wont read blank dvds anymore...I dont kno what to do...I tried a few TY dvds....even some memorex dvds....nothing.....though it can still read movies if I put them in....I dont know what to do now.....did I mess up my burner by cleaning it?....do I need a new one?

    Open DVD Decrypter or ImgBurn and put a blank disc in the drive.

    See if one of these programs will read the blank disc.

    Post back with your results.

    and it stalled for a long while
    Maybe the drivers are corrupted. Try uninstalling and reinstalling your DMA.

    See beside firmware in my signature in post #2 and look at DMA problems.

    What is the maker and model # of your burner?? Maybe a firmware overwrite or upgrade is needed.

    Please attach a Nero log.

    Any log will do as it will tell a lot about your system and possible conflicts.

    See my signature in post # 2 on how to do it.

    You are still missing part of your Nero log where it says which drivers are loaded.
