Dvd drives will not work, reads dvd and cds, will not see blank dvd media for burning? Answered

Why does my computer's dvd drives show me dvd then when i try to put a dvd in to copy files it changes to cd and won't let me do anything can you help please. all drivers are up to date. i have a 80 wire ide cable working both dvd which are brand new. one on master and the other on slave. is it possible that i should have a 40 wire ide cable for a connection. i don't know but it's really making me mad. this is my 4th build and i have never come across this problem before.......I'm really stumped thanks in advance if you can suggest any fixes?

. I can only think of two things: 1) It's not really a DVD burner 2) incompatible/defective blanks 3) Defective drive . Since this is your fourth build, #1 probably doesn't apply.
