When I click on File Explorer in Windows 10 it shows a CD present in the CD drive, even though it is empty.When I try to write to a CD I get the message "The device is busy 0x40010"

Thanks, have done that and re-formatted the disc. However, still get same error message when I try to write to it.

hi I found this on a site that might help you.......Do you have CD burning software installed such as Nero etc? If so, check that InCD and equivalents are not running - they may have priority access to the burner preventing TI from burning.

Hello, only had Burn Toolkit installed, which I have removed, re-booted, but still get the same. Interestingly, if I tried to burn without a CD installed it started happily enough before flagging an error.

Might be worth using a CD cleaning disc on it. Might be simply a speck of dust on the lens.
