Windows won't recognise black disc's! - GRIM - 12-10-2015

I have no idea what's going on here!
I did this not long before I updated to Win10 but the update seemed to fix things but now its back!
─░mage
here is a screen shot of what I get, how the hell can I format a disc if widows doesn't recognise it?

A little more details, this a writeable disc or rewriteable disc?
Brand, title states BLACK.

Sounds like you're using the built-in disc reading/writing program... have you tried using a disc burning program? Many of them will allow you to read discs that Windows otherwise wouldn't recognise

@*****, it's only on blank discs, I've used them before without problems, I just dragged MP3 tracks on to the window and burnt. Ordinary writable disc's.
I've just had another look and now the cd/dvd drive isn't showing. So @Jon... I can't try anything at the moment. I'm trying to update all my drivers in case they are screwed up.

I use Nero, don't bother with Windows burning software.

Well, I installed Nero and...

Nothing! I selected the files I needed to burn, right clicked 'Burn with Nero' it flashed up with the warning box for a second and gone!
I've been to M$ site and Windows10 help on this is non existant!
If anyone has any ideas let me know!

Oh, yes, I've checked the drivers are up to date.

I had a situation like this. Mine couldn't read or write because the laser light that burns the disk failed. Can you read other disks?


RE: Windows won't recognise black disc's! - GRIM - 14-10-2015

Yes, it reads disks no problem, it is just blank ones, I've tried several different makes and get the same result.

Please excuse the interruption but may I please enquire as to:

1. What version of Windows are you running?
2. What hardware platform is it running on?
3. Oh and what is a 'Black Disc'?


RE: Windows won't recognise black disc's! - DickLewis13 - 18-12-2015

Black disc is just that, all black even on recording side.
