Disc in dvd drive but asked to insert disc

OK I'll go through this step by step. I was trying to erase some DVD-RW discs (Verbatim)using BurnAware. First one I tried it told me there was no disc in the drive. Second one worked so I assumed there was something wrong with the first one. I then successfully burned a video to the second disc. I then tried to erase the other discs but again got the message "no disc in drive". Out of interest I inserted the one I had successfully erased and burned and was once again told "no disc in drive". When I insert the discs Autoplay does not work, but it works with DVD-R discs. Ihave uninstalled the driver and rebooted, I have deleted the filters, but still the same. Any help appreciated

RW CD/DVD's are known to often fail, but Try cleaning them with warm water and washing up liquid.Dry Thoroughly.
