Dvd drive is not recognizing dvd-rw

My dvd rw is not recognizing the blank dvd-rw disc when I try to burn media onto it. When I put in a dvd to play it recognizes the disc and plays the movie. I tried reinstalling,updating,rolling back the drivers and Windows XP says the dvd drive is working properly. Any suggestions? Thanks guys.

What are the brand and model of the drive that won’t read the disc?

Try some different discs. Been my experience that DVD+RW is better.

Lots of drives are picky about RW media… Make sure you’ve got the latest firmware.

I have a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-104 model. I am trying to use TDK DVD-RW discs.

tehGrue is right … Make sure your drive’s firmware is up to date.
