dvd rewriter problems

my dvd rewriter on my acer aspire 1520 laptop has just suddenly stopped writing dvds.i say stop writing,it appears to be writing them ok both with nearo burning software and others.but when you put the finished disc in the drive it can't read it. it still reads dvd's,reads cd's and writes cd's but not dvds.anyone help me with this problem as i'm baffled.

Try an uninstall of the driver for the DVD writer, then install again. I may be mistaken but if you delete it in Device Manager, then close down the system, when you boot up again it should re-install.
But check first!
