Default dvd will not burn

hi, i wonder if any of you techies can help me. i have a toshiba satellite 5200-903d winxp sp2, and now when i insert a blank dvd, it shows up as a full cdrom in my computer. i used to use dvdshrink/nero and had no problem burning dvds,still using the same media. now it appears to go through the motions of burning, but still left with a blank dvd. any help will be appreciated
thanks in advance. bob

how old is the dvd burner and is it a dvd ram? i bought one last year, had it for 3 months (just past warrenty period) i went to burn a dvd it burnt all the way through and it was still blank...after that i started having problems even reading c.d's and then it just died. your dvd burner could be on its way out

it is a toshiba dvd-rom sd-r6012, about two years old, but not had much use. it still plays dvds and burns cds. i was hoping it was some silly software problem.

At the risk of sounding like one of those drone-like phone techs (lol)...why don't you try updating the driver.

i found two sites for ya. You might need a membership for the Driver guide one...
