    im not to sure if this belongs in the multimedia section, because it pertains to burning, but it might be more about my CD/DVD drive...

    anyways i've done a lot of searching and nothing seems to solve my problem, i used to be able to burn dvds no problem, but recently it has stopped working. When i place a blank dvd into my drive nothing happens, i look into my computer and it just says there is no disk in the drive.

    ive already tried uninstalling the drives and restarting the computer and fixing the .reg, but nothing seems to work, ive also tried updating the drive

    any help? thanks in advance

    Can it read DVD's? It sounds like it may be a drive failure.
