    A little information first :)

    Are you running the latest version of Nero?

    Have you tried reinstalling nero?

    Will the drive recognize any discs at all?

    Have you uninstalled the drive through Device Manager and rebooted?

    Hi,

    And thanks for the help!

    I just burned a CD to make sure it was working and it reconized that disk fine. Then i went ahead to put in a blank DVD and try to burn again and no luck. What the heck am i doing wrong?

    Let's try uninstalling the drive through Device Manager first since it's quick and easy and might do the trick. Here's how:

    Go to Device Manager >

    Expand the tree for DVD/CD ROM Drives >

    Find the drive in question, right click it and go to Properties >

    Under the Driver tab, select Uninstall then OK.

    Now reboot and Windows should detect and reinstall the drive.

    If this doesn't help try the same steps as above except expand the tree for IDE ATA/ATA Controllers and uninstall either the Primary or Secondary controller depending on which one the drive in question is attatched to. Nero Info Tool can tell you which chain the drive is on under the Configuration tab.

    Ok, the snapperhead i am...LOL

    I bought the wrong DVD's so of course they would not burn! DUHHHH

    I have a DVD + RW and i had DVD-R. So now it all works again. I have seen so many people who have this problem on the web when i did a search. I just hope we could let them all know it is something so simple! Like looking at what you buy! LOL :eek:)

    Thanks so much for all your help and also thanks for letting me know to update my Firmware!
