DVD Drive won't read empty DVD-RW


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.

  1. Did you try a different DVD-RW? Could have a bad disk - it happens.
