    Question DVD Burner will not detect blank cd-r discs

    Alright this is the problem man..................
    i reformated my hardrive about 2 weeks ago and everthing is working fine like it sopposed too except my dvd burner drive i have a {iomagic} dual format 8x dvd rewritable drive compatible with cds and dvds ok before i reformated it i could make back up cds back up dvds and good stuff like that on cd-r, dvd-r, etc. but now when i put a blank cd-r and try to burn a backup cd my dvd drive does not detect it it says " Please insert blank disc" but when i put a dvd-r in there it pulls it right up and detects it. also it will read mp3 dvd-r data discs if i put put it in the drive. i just dont see why it does'nt detect cd-rs no more, ??????? any one who might could help me with this problem would be great sorry if there already has been a post but i could not find on this site or any where else

    Did you re-install the software drivers for the burner after you re-formatted the disk?

    Windows plug-and-play would detect the device but without the manufacturer's drivers it may not have all systems running.

    What are you using to burn with ? & is sp2 applied ? (& if you applied sp2 after installing your burning s/w, take it all off & reapply it) & can you confirm that this is in internal IDE drive & not connected via usb or some such ..

    & will it read 'already done' cd's ok ? (& is there any differnce in results between 'burnt' & 'pressed' cds ?)
