LG DVD RW drive shows 0 free space when I insert a new DVD. Cannot record anything. Reads ok. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have LG RW Dvd drive when I insert a new DVD, and click properties on the device, shows that the disc has no free space.  When I attempt to record anything, nothing happens.  It behaves as though something has been previously written to the disc.  Have tried more than one DVD.  Any help appreciated.

    Hi,

        

    To my understanding, that is the normal behaviour for new (blank) DVD.

        

    You need to install DVD writer software application (e.g. Roxio Creator, etc) in order to write files into the DVD disc. Most DVD writers comes with such free software, so do check again for any CD that comes with the writer, or download freeware from the Internet.

         

    Hope that helps.

        

    Cheers,
