Hello everyone, I seem to be having a problem with either both my DVD drives or my disks I bought. Heres the situation.
I went out and bout a 100-pk of Memorex DVD+R's. Out of the 100pk I used 5 maybe 10 at most. Ive never had a problem with Memorex disks which is why I buy them. Tell now.
I was in the middle of backing up some of my movies I own (with kids you really have no other choice. you now one day its gonna get ruined). I had just finished coping a move the night before bed and when I went to put a fresh blank disk in the next morning to burn, I would get a message that said
"please instert larger media, there isn't enough space on the current media."
I took that media out thinking it was bad and put another disk in and got the same message. It seemed odd to me to get 2 damaged disks so I pulled a random disk from the middle of the spool i got and It too failed. To me that seems really Odd for a random disk in the middle not to work.
Lucky for me, I have 2 computers both with DVD drives in them. I went to the 2nd computer and took the spool of disks and did a random pick near the bottom and got the same error message. At this point I started to think it was the media Im trying to copy tell I windows poped open the "what do you want windows to do with the blank (cd/dvd) When it does that on either computer rather than it saying Blank dvd it says blank cd and explorer thinks its a cd. and has 0 free space out of 0 used.
heres where im lost. Could my entire spool of disks be bad or could both lasers on both dvd drives be shot? Ive never had a problem with this. and hope someone can help me out.
Both drives support DVD+R/+RW/-R/-RW/DL
