    So my laptop has a Windows Vista 32bit......
    with this driver: Sony CDRWDVD CRX880A ATA Device

    I am able to read/play/burn CD's
    I am able to read/play DVD's
    But i tryed 2 sets Blank DVD's and my drive will not recognize them.
    Instead it tells me that theres no disc inside...

    Also i already tried to update the sony driveres, but it tells me that i already have the newest update.
    Does anyone have any idea as to what is the problem? [​IMG]

    Make sure it has the DVD RW logo on the drive itself (should be on the side panel)...

    It looks like this:

    (it's just the [RW] block, sometimes there is no text below it)


    If it doesn't have that, there's a VERY high chance that it's not a DVD burner at all...

    edit: hmm... +'s seem to be transformed into %20 using the img tag... New image
