I have a DVD+R/RW CD-R/RW NEC ND 1100s drive. For the past year I have been burning cd's and dvd's fine with this drive. Just recently my drive has stopped recognizing blank cd's regarldess of the media. I am using the same cd's I have always used.
The wierd thing is that I can still burn dvd's no problem, it recognizes them and lets me burn them.
I may not be a hardware problem, but I really can't tell. I have installed new drivers, updated firmware, unistalled the dvd burner then reinstalled it, I even formatted my C: drive and completely reinstalled everything!!
Now I have never put a blank cd into my normal dvd rom drive, however if I put in a blank dvd it will say it has 4.7gigs of free space.. just like if you explore out to a normal 1.44 floppy disk that is blank; however now when I try to do the same to a blank cd, it never shows up. It acts like there is nothing in the tray. I thought my dvd burner was just broke, but since niether of the drive's detect the blank dvd I have no idea what is wrong.
I only use easy cd creator 5.0. Since I only really ever just make music cd's.
The computer used to autorun blank cd's and give me options of what to do with it. Now it doesn't even do that.
Please if anyone can assist I would appreciate this.
