DVD ROMS in NETWORK not working

By RobertQ&A ·
Ok so imp having a problem with me DVD ROMs in my network. I can burn cds on some of them but not all. But after I put in a blank DVD in the drive it won?t read it at all, or when I click on it tell me incorrect function. I have thought it may be a GPO that was blocking me but I could not find one causing it. Anyone have any thoughts? Oh also I did buy a new set of DVDs just incase I was the most unlucky person around and had a stack of bad disk.

With a Multireader cd/dvd drive, you can load on nearly any cd/dvd disk. Now-a-days they come with blu-ray as well.

Well here is a little more information. First lets just take it down to one drive. We will use the one of my servers, its has a "Plextor PX-708A" and can read cd/dvds that have data or programs on them. But when i insert a blank disk i get "D is not accessible. Incorrect function" i have looked to see if it was a GPO, and i have updater the firmwear on it also.

May be you are having DVD-ROMs installed instead of DVD-Writers/Burners installed in your machines. Hence it may be happening as you are mentioning. Check it. Also post which OS you are using for the purpose and type/model of the DVD drive and even the type/version/brand of DVD Burning Software, if any.

Because only a magician can produce something out of thin air.

Or in your case, data from an empty unused optical disc.
