DVD RW not recognized RRS feed

  • Question

  • Gateway Desktop running Vista Home Premium.  The DVD RW (Optirc DVD RW AD-7203A ATA Device) device recognizes CD ROM disks, but will not recognize DVD disks.  Tried using DVD disks from which
    I've installed programs earlier.  Any suggestions?

  • Attempt to boot from the Vista disk.  If it is unable to boot from the Disk I would try a known good drive.  It sounds as though you may have had a lens go bad on the drive.
