New to the forum in search of help, thanks in advance. So, here’s the problem.
Just recently, possibly when I upgraded to Roxio Easy Media Creator 8, but not sure, my computer stopped recognizing when I have my DVD-R blank media in the drive.
Anytime I have any burning software in the computer and it asks for me to “please insert a blank disc” … it doesn’t do a thing when I put in any of my DVD-R discs in. I have tried all 3 different ones I have that I have burned on with this computer and drive in the past, they are: Verbatim 8x DVD-R, Play DVD-R 8X, and also Ritek DVD-R 4X. Luckily, I have some Fujifilm DVD+R 4X and they are working. In the meantime, I have hundreds of these DVD-Rs that have stopped working.
I upgraded the firmware for my DVD-RW 16X HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4166B Drive (is that an LG drive???) from the compaq website, it’s new firmware from Jan of 2006. Seems so odd and I am at my wits end! Can anyone help! How can I get this drive/computer to recognize this DVD-R media?
Thanks a ton
