DVD R/W Drive Runs Software but Not DVDs

This just started acting up. If I stick software disk in drive, like I just installed TurboTax, runs AutoPlay, give me install prompts. Tried burning a DVD today using ImgBurn (done it at least 100 times) today, get error, No media in drive. Tried playing a store bought DVD Movie, drive will not regognize. Device manager says its working fine with the most current driver. Thoughts? Thanks!

  1. Hello garywi,
    Welcome to Forums!

    1. Uninstall the driver in Device Manager and Restart the computer - let Windows reinstall the driver for this drive.

    2. Try FixIt

    3. This is a bit of hassle - try to test this drive on another PC

    4. Drive Laser might have gone weak - weak lasers would sometimes read a CD/DVD and won't detect other

    Hope this gets resolved - Good luck and Happy New Year!!
