    Default DVD-RW drive wont read blank DVD's

    I have a sony vaio and use anydvd and nero recode. The problem is that my drive encodes fine, but when I get to the burn screen my drive doesn't recognize the blank dvd-r. I have tried to uninstall the driver for my drive and reinstall, but it still won't read. The drive reads all other media fine. Help

    Have you used Nero Info Tool to insure you burner will burn -r disk?
    Also a great place to start is the Golden Rules of Burning.

    You can find the link in a number of Sigs.
    Important: Remember, if something is worth doing, its worth doing wrong until you learn to do it Right!

    IT'S ALL GOOD

    that burner is 4 years old, way too old for newer media, try the firmware
    http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=750
    1S34 it might see most dash R media, I would stick with 8X if I could find it.

    even that firmware is 3 years old, forget the 8x, try 4x media
