My computer is an HP desktop, running MS XP Media Center 2005, less than a week old. It came with a Lite-on DVD+/- writer/CD writer drive, but when I insert blank DVD+R disks, the drive name changes from "DVD-RW Drive (E" to "CD-Drive (E" and the drive recognizes that the disk is there, but says it's full. These are new Verbatim disks. When I check the disk properties, it says Used Space: 0 bytes, Free Space: 0 bytes, Capacity: 0 bytes.
I then put in a new Sony DVD+/- RW drive from my old computer and it does the same thing - but it used to work fine for these same blank disks. Then I tried blank Memorex disks - same problem.
Both drives recognize and play recorded DVD disks, and no problem with blank CD-RW disks. I just can't burn any DVD's.
Any ideas? Please advise. Thank you.
