    My DVD writer, which is about 3 months old, will not now write or read cd's but has no problem with DVD's.
    Having checked my settings and googled for solutions it seems the fault must lie with the writer.
    Anyone else have a similar problem or can offer an explanation ?

    you could try updating the firmware or using different burning software. have you tried different brands of media?

    I've tried different media but have not tried different software, I have nero.
    What is firmware ? I'm not very tech savvy.

    firmware is kinda like the software that's built into the hardware. you can usually get an updated version from the manufacturer's website.
