Optorite DD1203 Not Recognising DVD's


My DD1203 has just decided to completely ignore anything DVD related! Blank DVD’s, DVD movies, home made DVD’s etc., etc. But it’s fine with CDR’s??

It was fine until I tried to erase a +RW disk using nero which made my PC hang. I had to hard reboot to get it back and that’s all she wrote.

Attached are some screenshots of DVDINFOPRO. The Drive did not report ready message is when there is a DVD in it.

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.


You may need to have the drive replaced. Sounds like a hardware failure.

I have the same issue with the dd 1205
