[qanda]This thread is about the Philips DVD8801. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi, recently my Dvd Burn started to report some problems when burning dvds. I have successfully burned many dvds in the past and burned a couple recently.
However, within the last few days the dvdrom is now unable to read any cd's or dvds that I put into the drive.
With that being said I was able to burn a dvd fine yesterday but when I put it back in after it was burned, it said it was empty. I could see that there was no free space and something had been written on it (0mb of 25mb free appeared in my Explorer).
I then took that dvd and tried it in my dvd player and it played fine, there was all the information I had wrote to the dvd itself.
I am very confused on why this is happening and I am not sure how to fix it, as it is impossible to find almost any information on this DVD Burner.
I have tried both dvds and cds (i recently got a razor mouse, which the dvd drive could not read the cd but my other computer could).
I have not tried uninstalling and reinstalling the DVD Drive through the Computer Management as I am unsure that is the real problem.
Has anyone else run into something similar?
