This used to only happen sometimes, but today I can't seem to get it to work. When I insert a blank DVD, neither Nero or WMP recognize a disc in the drive (when the drive is selected, it thinks it is empty and prompts to insert a blank disc). When I go into My Computer, the DVD-RAM Drive turns into CD Drive and thinks there is no disc.
The firmware is up to date. I am trying to burn a data disc like I have in the past when it worked.
Thanks in advance.
Edit: I am using Verbatim double layer 8.5GB DVDs. Also, the drive reads all other discs (games (DVD and CD), CDs, etc)
