DVD drive doesn't recognise DVD's

  y_not 20:05 23 Jul 2003

Earlier today I played a DVD without a problem.

I have since tried to copy a DVD (a sample that I produced and often copy) but the DVD drive didn't recognise that there was a DVD in the writer.

Since then I have been unable to read or write DVD's.

Any ideas or suggestions, please?

Ritek 4X blanks & Sample DVD
Win2k, 756Mb RAM, 162Gb HDD (Total), Nero DVD software, Interactual player software.

I have already removed from Device Manager, tried several re-boots, checked connections.
Nero opens drawer but then asks for media to be inserted (when a disk is already in the drive)

If your running XP try Power DVD i have never used Interactual player for two years even then i had to use Power DVD software for it to work.

Thanks for the reply Philip. I am using Interactual and its been working fine - till this evening.

I am wondering if the DVD writer is faulty - I've had a few problems since I bought it but, for the last few weeks, it seemed to settle down.

Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Sorry i was no help but if your DVD writer is new
and looks faulty take it back we all pay enough for are hardware these days.

You are not hitting the cancel button when Nero asks for a disk? That will ruin the session.

FAULTY, I had this and the drive chucked it out.
