My DVD/CD burner on my Dell Inspiron 8600 has stopped burning CDs or DVDs.
It's a 4X NEC DVD+RW ND-5100A. Everytime I try to burn either a CD or a DVD, the error message appears saying that insert a blank CD or a writable DVD. even changing the disks doesn't help. I have used the same brand of CD and DVD's a lot of times earlier and never had this kind of an issue. It is still able to recognize the CDs and DVDs that are already burned.
Do I have to update any drivers? or is it a plain hardware issue?
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated
