Hi,
I am using a Satellite M100 Version PSMA0L-18203E on windows xp sp3.
My DVD writer model is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N.
The problem is a am able to read and write Cd but when i insert a blank dvd,it displays"Please insert a disk into the Drive" whereas I am able to use the Toshiba’s Recovery DVD ROM without any problems.Please help me.

Hi,

Windows XP can’t handle blank DVD media. Use a DVD burning application for that purpose. ImgBurn is a highly recommended, free solution.

I have used Sonic(pre-installed in my Toshiba laptop) and NERO with both showing no disk when I insert a blank DVD but create no problems when i try to write a CD.

Okay. Please try ImgBurn and post the log.

Not good.

Normally, you should be able to enter build mode without having a blank disc inserted. If you’re ready then insert the disc. Perhaps you try again.

Additionally, you may try other blank media, preferably quality stuff from Verbatim. If you’ve been using DVD-R, then try also DVD+R please. Also, you can try if cleaning the lens using a soft brush (like for camera lens) does help.
