What DVD-media do you use? The 5002 can only burn DVD-R/RW, not +R/RW.

Yeah, you need other media or a other writer.

The 5002 is an awful burner, and I´m sure it doesn´t like newer media.

You bought this media, you cannot make others responsible for that.

Comes in a SONY Laptop, so you should ask Sony or visit their support sites.

Re: My DVD-burner doesnt detect blank DVD's!

Probably the DVD-Rw you try are not supported by your drive, your drive surely can only use 1x/2x rated DVD-RW.

The discs are how rated?
