Default DVD burner not detecting blank discs

Im having a very annoying problem. I have been trying to burn things lately and I have kept having the same probelm. My dvd burner dosent recognize any blank discs. I have tried many programs(Nero, Copy2DVD, MagicIso, Burn4Free) none of them work. I have tried several different types of dvd's and cd's but none of them work. Does anyone have any idea why its not working?

Are they in upside down? I do that all the time with the un labeled disk you can buy dirt cheap. Also, is the drive hooked up properly (two masters on the same ide, not connected to the ide at all, ect...)?
