    I insert a blank DVD and the computer won't even recognize that there is a
    disk in the drive. I've used these blank DVD's to burn movies on several
    other computers, and those DVD's that have movies on them, from the exact
    same stack of blank DVD's open up and play the movie perfectly, it's only the
    blank DVD's that are not being recognized...... This is really
    frusterating.....

    Help me PLEASE

    The device is a SONY CDRWDVD CRX3102 SCSI CdRom Device

    it will recognize blank CD's but not BLANK DVD's..... I swear I've burnt
    DVD's using this drive before, but now it's not working.... am I crazy? or
    just stupid?
    What am I doing wrong. please please please help

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a similar problem except that mine recognizes blank DVD's but not
    CD's. Tried the suggestions that Carey Fisch posted, but none worked.
    Strngest part - I am dual booting Win 7 beta and Vista. In Win 7,
    everything is fine.

    Try to update the firmware of the drive from the drive manufacturer'
    website or the system manufacturer's website

    tried the firmware and driver approach - nothing out there. Besides,
    am using the same driver for Win 7 and it is working fine
