Hi. I have a DVD burner (Memorex) in my PC which is now exhibiting the following symptoms:

1. Not recognizing DVD's it burned a long time ago.
2. Then didn't recognize blank discs (Memorex brand) as blank.
3. Recognized Sony discs as blank and successfully burned a disc but then...
4. Would not recognize this recently burned disc as having anything on it (or even being in the drive).
5. Recognizes store-bought DVD's ok.

Note: this recently burned disc (and the older discs) are all being recognized in other dvd drives.

Any thoughts......is my DVD burner dead? Any ideas?

Thanks.

I had a similar situation got a new DVD Burner and the problems disappeared, I'd say your burners on death row, Newegg has an excellent price on an OEM SATA Plextor.

I just installed a new drive and had the same problem, turned out it was a software conflict and after some looking at my programs I was able to solve problem.

Yellbird, how did you find out what program was doing that? Because my drive can read games and legit movies, but now it can't read anything burned, even dvds/cds it burned before.
