ok, my computer had went out due to a power supply issue, i replaced the power supply and it worked perfect, well, it burned the movie no problems, well, i was going to do another movie, i inserted a blank dvd disc and it didn't read the disc, i inserted a movie, worked, i inserted a data disc, it worked, i inserted a scratched, program disc, it worked, i inserted a NEW blank DVD disc and it won't read it. i know it's not the drives (i have two and both do the same) because i put them in another computer and they work, the blank disc get read when the drives are on another computer, this is where i'm stuck, i wan't to be able to burn, any help would be great, oh i forgot, i'm using tdk dvd's and i used a verbatim dual layer and the same thing, but like i said they worked on the other computer, basically, imgburn says "medium not present" when i insert a blank disc, thanks to anyone that can help.
Not all DVDRWs can read all brands of media, try another brand of disc, or visit the DVDRW's manufacturer's website to see if the mfr. has posted a firmware update for your make and model - those updates usually allow the drive to read/write more brands of media.
ok, thanks for the reply first of, i just realized something else just right now, my other dvd drive is doing the same thing as the top one and i did do a firmware update, that's two drives that are doing the same thing, so now i'm lost, any more people, please, i need some help
This can be caused by unplugging a USB flash drive without safely "ejecting" it first. Apparently if you don't follow proper procedures before removing a USB flash drive it can cause conflicts with DVD burner functionality. Try inserting a flash drive and then "eject" it when it says it is safe to do so and the issue may correct itself. Hope this helps.
