Hello,
I have a Dell Dimension 4600 that is running Windows XP Professional. Last year I replaced the original CD writer with the HP dvd1040. My problems are:
1. CDs burnt with the original writer are registering as blank on both drives of my system: the 1040 and the original DVD ROM drive, BUT work on other systems.
2. CDs and DVDs that I now burn are sometime registering as blank on both drives or as blank in one or the other drive.
3. CDs and DVDs that are registering as blank on my machine work perfectly well on other machines.
4. Some CDs and DVDs burnt and working fine on other machines are registering as blank on my machine.

Any info as to how I may address these problems would be greatly appreciated.

hey no .. no idea .. but i heard if you clean your drive using a cleaning cd it will become alright..
but i am not finding the ckeaning disc anywhere. if you can find it out then try that..and let me know the result..
i had da same prob usin an external dvd rom it read original disks perfect but when it cam to blanks or burnt disks it would not read it. any way i noticed that blank dvd's are thinner than original dvds so i tried pressing my dvd rom down i bit a gentle squeeze rigt after inserting da blank and it worked surprisingly. i think its a fluke and that im luvky it worked but hope it works for u

i have the same problem. one week ago i downloaded Nero 10 and yesterday tried to burn a dvd, i waited 15 min and the burning proccess completed succesfully. But when i try to read now the dvd, it won't work any more on my PC. I tried to read it on another Pc and it worked perfectly.

Why does this happens?

Does anyone have any answer?

Please e-mail me !

Thanx!
