I've found quite a few threads here and tried to navigate through them but have honestly ended up lost. Im not a techy and would really appreciate some general guidelines and step by steps to try and figure out the issue! Please anyone with patience Heres the issue. My E drive will not recognize a blank DVD. I can burn CDs and play all burnt DVDs and CDs. I've even burnt a video to a CD but have 100 blank DVDs and a bunch of movies I would like to clear from my PC but I cant get it to work. I first tried to burn them using Windows Media Player. It recognized the blank DVD but froze (Not Responding) when I started the burning process and havent been able to do anything since. I have tried simply to drag a movie to My Computer/ E: drive and it says "insert blank DVD". Again it WILL recognize CDs. I just downloaded a simple version of Nero- but same thing. Nothing will recognize these DVDs. Im using Maxell -R DVDs. Any suggestions please?
