CD writer requesting "insert blank disk"

  Tinnie 13:36 02 Jan 2005

I am using Roxio Easy CD creator 6 with no problems, however recently when I try to burn files to a blank CD, it's asking for a blank CD to be inserted, even thougha blank disk in in the drive.
I have checked that the drive has the correct assigned drive letter.

Either that or the drive is getting iffy.Try ejecting and putting it in again.

you could have the wrong speed disks or are you perhaps putting a cdrw into a cdr only drive? they do not work.

Thanks to all who replied to my problem.
I turned out to be operator error, probably due to too much of the hard stuff over the festive period.
