Sony's DVD-R not recognized by my laptop [Solved/Closed]

- - Latest reply:  porkpiepete - Aug 17, 2010 at 06:56 AM

My lenovo IBM laptop does not recognize Sony 4.7 GB DVD-R. Though the DVD mentions on its casing that it is 1x-16x compatible, however also warns that trying to play this DVD on a non-compatible device could damage the disc or the device. This is Sony's new technology DVD-R called Accucore. I can play any other CD or DVD, but not this high capacity DVD. Do I need to install some firmware on my laptop to play this DVD-R on my laptop?

Please advise.

Thank you.

try to upgrade the firmware or the DVD reader or else you will have to change the drive.
