This is the situation: my Samsung TS-H552B DVD+-DL RW device doesn't recognize any blank CD-R(W) media anymore: no sony, no tdk, no e.com. Other media, such as DVD-R(W) and printed CD(-ROM) still work fine. The problem happened suddenly, after a final succesfully burned CD-R on the cheap e.com discs. So everything used to work, even with both Nero 6.0.8 and Pinnacle 8.3 installed and TS04 firmware at a WinXP Professional machine in master position. Uninstalling some software, updating the firmware and removing the upper- and lowerfilters in the registry, just as reinstalling the drive and it's drivers were all in vain. The discs just keep on spinning.
How can I get the thing to work again with CD-R's, or could it be a hardware-problem? Thank you for helping me finding a solution.
