ok, this sounds like just some dumb error


i think u should uninstall and re-install your dvd drive


if u wana do this go to

Control panel> system> device manager

once u get there, find the dvd drive from the list

when u click it,

u can see if its functional. more than likely it is

its from here that u can re-install your drive.

u got to uninstall it first

and then restart your computer

it will automaticlly detect the "new hardware" and install it

i suggest u try this

stupid question: what do you expect the drive to read from a blank dvd?

just go to burn... see if it burns anything. if not, buy a new one... they cost around 10 or less.

Dick head, when you enter a blank dvd the option pops up for it or it shows up when you click computer, anyways it spits it out everytime I try to write something on it...

yeah, but you can cancel that so it does nothing... which is what you might have done.. i said it was a stupid question. i wasnt trying to be a dick lol

just buy a new one, they cost pennies.

You cant cancel it when you hit computer. and it shows the different drives and whats in your cd/dvd drive, it usually says black disc

google the model/type and see it its a common problem

most of the time it is and if so then u should be able find solutions that someone posted.



if not, just buy a new dvd writer drive and repalce it



p.s: u should go to Device Manager and update the driver (if not updated). this might be the problem
