Running Winxp home When I insert an empty cd-rw in the D drive slot I get "Access denied. Clicking on the D drive icon properties shows the disk is in place and empty. No problem when a disk containing data is put into the drive. Should I be getting "Access Denied" with an empty disk?
Hi, Yes you SHOULD get "Access Denied" message and/or another message: "Please insert a disk in Drive D:" This is because Windows will examin the disk and discover that there are files on it, so to windows you have NO disk in the drive (Even though it tries to read the disk).
