I have a problem in dvd drive i.e. It can read CD/DVD and can write CD and all CD/DVD-RW but cannot write DVD DVD drive model is SH-S203B Samsung; I also have a log file created by nero burning rom 11.

Actually the fact is no Blank DVD's are being read in my dvd drive only previously written dvd's can be read! Is this the problem of OS or should I try cleaning the dvd drive or my DVD drive is 4yrs old so is it going to spoil now, since it is showing this type of symptoms!

How old is the DVD Drive? Some could only do +R(W) or -R(W) (they are different) - Nero should be able to tell you the supported media types of the device. –  PhonicUK Aug 17 '12 at 15:26
    
My DVD Drive is 4 yrs old and it supports dvd-r has previously I used to write same type of dvd's. Is this an issue of OS? –  FrozenKing Aug 18 '12 at 7:00

The answer to this is using dvd lens cleaner. The problem was caused due to accumulation of dust in the lens of dvd drive.

Removing open session from dvd-rw
