DVD Drive won't read empty DVD-RW Tags: DVD Drives DVD RW Storage Last response: January 30, 2013 1:05 PM in Storage Share exspeednfs January 30, 2013 11:42:40 AM Hi, So I wanted to write some files onto an empty DVD-RW disk, and when I put it into my Samsung SH-224 ODD, it won't read my empty disk. The ODD is making a lot sound, as if it is trying to spin the disk but failing to do so. Spin, stop, spin, stop. Do I have a faulty ODD? BTW I did put in another CD-R (it wasn't empty) and it read that disk fine. More about : dvd drive read empty dvd J_E_D_70 a b G Storage January 30, 2013 1:05:17 PM Did you try a different DVD-RW?
