If your DVD-/+RW writer is not capable if witting to newest and fastest DVD media discs (common error for this »Could not start disk-at-once«) you should do two things:

  • upgrade drivers firmware – you can check your firmware version with free Nero Info Tool then go to drives producer support page and try to find newer firmware. Follow the instructions for use. Here is a list of links to some common firmwares.


  • upgrade your burning software (for example Nero if you paid for it, or try free Deep Burner if you are looking for news burning software, there is even a portable version available!)

# re: Sony DVD Writer shows up as CD Drive when blank DVD is inserted 8/20/2007 10:02 AM GB Sprite
anyone know why the DVD writer shows up as a CD writer
when a blank DVD is inserted?

Someone told me this happens when Nero is uninstalled badly
it leaves back some crap that causes this problem.
