My DVD/CD read/write drive will read & play DVDs & CDs but when I try to burn a CD, WMP & Nero keep asking for a blank CD even though there is a brand new one in the drive. I have burnt several hundreds of CDs & DVDs in the 3 years I have had the drive. Is it time to replace or is there some sort of setting that needs fixing.
I bought a new drive but, before I installed it, I rechecked and the problem has gone away! Maybe if anyone else has this problem, the first step should be to reboot. Incidentally, the man at the shop said that these drives don't last much longer than the 1-year guarentee.
"Incidentally, the man at the shop said that these drives don't last much longer than the 1-year guarentee." - That's about it John - mass produced - cheap as chips - but then it all depends on how often you use it. I have worked out that mine should last about 20yrs !!
