Ah, right so here we go.
I have a Dell Dimension E520 w/ upgrades .
It comes stock with a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-H553A
A couple months ago, about, two, or a little less, it just stopped working. Out of nowhere. I was on a pack of dvd's I had boiught a couple weeks prior. I used them before.
Basically, my problem is, when I put in a BLANK dvd, it's not dected. if I double click on my drive, it tells me to "Please insert a disc into slot E:". Same with cd's.
I've reformatted two (ish) times since then, in hope of it being software problems, but nothing. I installes, nero, and a CyberLink program, and they didn't detect anything. If I put something in there, like a dvd with stuff on it, it comes up fine, or even a movie dvd, it all plays right. but it's pissing me off because I have a lot of stuff to back up, and gotta jump drive it to my laptop.
Basically in Short:
My burner just stopped working for BLANK dvds. it don't detect them
It works for cds/dvds with stuff on it. movie dvd's included.
Can't burn anything !
Any help is appreciated ! Thanks in advance
