A DVD Is Blank When It's Not

A dvd set I bought several months ago has a problem.
It was a relatively expensive DVD set for my budget and I am upset the 2nd dvd in the set isn't being recognized by my computer.

I posted about this a couple of weeks ago.

Now something else has come up. I thought about ripping the dvd onto my hard drive after VML failed to work too.
But now all my computers do is think that it's a blank dvd?

I know it isn't. It's not even a DVD-RW and I don't have a superdrive, so that's impossible? Isn't it?

Any hack for this?

What sort of DVD was it? Could you take it back and ask for a replacement?

Yeah. No Kidding.

But it wasn't blank to begin with however.
The video files showed up early on.

No.
To tell you the truth, the third dvd looks more "damaged" on the bottom than the second one does.

More info:

My mac says I've inserted a blank dvd, but when I tell it to mount in on the finder, it comes up as a blank cd?



Is that because I don't have a Superdrive?

Mac Says Disc is Blank, but it isn't...

I am having the same problem with a sermon disc. When I insert it into my Mac Pro, it says the disc is blank. I know it isn't because when I insert it into my Mac Book, it shows it.

I would go ahead and post the sermon on our church website through my MacBook, but I can't seem to install Wave Pad on that computer, whereas I already have Wave Pad on my Mac Pro. Wave Pad allows me to change the sermon into an .mp3 file so I can post it.

Very frustrating! Any ideas?
