Burners won't reconize blanks

Hi All.
I need HELP> I,ve build a new puter using old burners and H/D's. Installed Win 7 x64 SP 1 and same programmes that where running on old puter. Problem is both burners wont reconise blank media - CD's or DVD's. Media worked on old puter with these burners. 1 x burner is Pioneer connected with IDE cable other one is Asus connected by SATA. Same problem on both burners using Nero and WMP 11. . I've also been into the reg. and removed upper and lower filters...But still no go ...........

Brand names?

The only thing I can think of is that our DVD burners are notoriously picky abour certain brands of DVDs. Memorex, for example, often won't be recognized at all or will yeild unusable data.

Depends on your config and the corresponding hard drives.

In this case please try the following for starters:
Completely unplug the SATA burner and set the IDE burner to MASTER via jumper.
How exactly that's done depends on the model - usually there's a label on the device itself or you can find that information on the manufacturer's website.
