    I would try cleaning the drive first, after all if its renadig disks it means the drive mechanism is fine, standard DVD player cleaner will suffice.If you need to replace and have a good spec pc go for a 22 speed drive, Lite-on, Samsung and LG are good reliable makes.


    A DVD will not show available space, but it will still allow you to copy, plus once a siseson is closed it will show up as zero space available, no matter how much you have actually used.Is the DVD/RW ? If so you may need to format it to use.Are you using a DVD drive and not just a CD drive, common mistake.Lastly it could simply be faulty DVD, does it have any scratches etc?
