DVD not reading blank dvds but reading everything else

vbimport

#1

Hi

well the problem is as follows.
i have a sony Vaio with dw-d56a DVD multi layer writer. Initially it worked fine for 3 months - it both read and wrote to blank dvds and cds as well as reading any media. I have used various blank dvds many of which worked in the first 3 months so know that they should work!

Now it fails to recognise any blank DVD media i put into it. however , it still reads DVD movies fine as well as burning /reading cds. I cannot determine if its a problem with burning as i cannot get past the fact that it says the drive is empty when i put the blank dvd in it. (it does attempt to read the disc for about 2 mins whirring and clicking away to no avail)

i have updated the firmware to the very latest but still it will not work. i have read similar problems in other threads but it seems no one has had a solution… and was hoping someone might have resolved this by now…???

I would be sooooooooo grateful for anyones help!

below is the Nero info tool info:

Bah, this long log is TOO long.

You can try to clean your drive/lens with a lens cleaner.
If that fails, your drive has probably a hardware failure.
To be sure about that, you could test the drive in another computer, if that’s possible.
