DCD/CD drive won't detect blank DVDs

heres my situation; i have a dell CD/DVD +/- drive and it was working fine untill today. i have burned many CDs and DVDs (all the same brand) untill today. i can write and read CDs but i just cant write DVDs. i can read them fine… i jsut cant write. any ideas? :confused:

Do you get any errors like power calibration ??

I think this is likely to be a drive problem, so I’ll move the thread to the Optical Drives forum :wink:
