DVD RW-R disc not found

Hello All I have a dvd-rw on my laptop and whenever I put a blank dvd in to copy files too my laptop doesnt recognise that theres a disc in the drive!! Any Ideas??? I have no problem playing cd's or dvd's with the drive

The obvious first question is do you have a burning program such as Nero installed?

Yes I have nero express 6 installed and that doesnt recognise a dvd as being in the drive either

I would try a another brand of media and make sure you have the latest firmware up date for your writer.

Try uninstalling the drive from Device Manager and then rebooting - Windows should Find New Hardware and also reinstall the basic CDROM driver for the drive.
