    Its my new cd writer,SM 332B (32X10X40X12X).Everything is fine for writing on CD-R or reading CD & DVD, But the writer unable to detect CD-RW. The message "drive empty" or "Please insert CD-RW" will appear everytime I tried to format a blank CD-RW using nero INCD. I've tried so many time with different CD-RW but its still the same.
    Is it problem with INCD program or writer itself.

    I'm not an expert in this stuff, I'm sorry, but for what I was told, all programs that make you use CD-RW as Hard drives (Direct CD, INCD and so on) are crap. Usually ther cause conflicts between drivers.
    I would never suggest to install such stuff.

    Hope someone can help you more ...

    Well... now I found my writer able to detect formated CD-RW, burning and reformat but its still can't detect a blank CD-RW.How can I format the blank CD-RW. Is there any type of formated CD-RW available.

    Just a question... if you select 'Recorder--->Medium Info' (CTRL+I) on Nero what does it show?

    I've had some problems with InCD as well.

    The latest version works better, but you might have to eject and reinsert the media a few times in order for it to be recognized.

    First-With blank formated CD-RW,medium info:
    Blank CD-Rewritable
    Total Capacity: 00:00:00 0MB
    Available Capacity: 74:48:01 657MB
    and the message is "the medium is empty"

    Second-With blank CD-RW,medium info:
    Just a message "no medium inserted or drive not ready,please try again"

    FYI, I've been tried a few time but it still can't recornize the disk

    Some of your RW's are high speed (CD-RW HS) and your burner doesn't support them?

    I think its drive thats the problem. I have a Samsung CD Writer as well, and after a 'drive hang', which I believe damaged the optical pickup unit, it has been unable to read CD-RWs. From what I see, low reflectivity of CD-RWs + damaged/faulty optical unit would give rise to such a problem. Think I'm gonna get another non-Samsung burner soon.
