Phillips Drive

my phillips PBDV885P drive detects blank dvds as blank cds, this also happens with my creative dvd drive, im at a loss as wat to do, im considering reformatting the computer as this problem only came up recently

Do you mean Explorer shows them as CDs because that’s very normal, not right but that’s what it does.

the computer is adamant that its a blank cd so it wont burn dvd movie files to it because it thinks its a blank cd

Depends what software you’re trying to burn with. The Windows built-in burner will not work with DVDs if that’s what you’re using.

i know it wont im using nero this problem has been bugging me for weeks now, i reformatted my machine and its still there. nero wont burn to the dvd for some reason i think it thinks its a cd as well :frowning:
