cd will not burn

Please can anyone tell me why my cd writer drive will not burn, it reads Ok but when I try to burn anything it tells me there is no disc in the drive. Has it given up the ghost and I will have to get it replaced.

what software are you using to burn CD's??

In Device Manager is there any Yellow ? or !'s

If the CD is reading ok but not burning I would say your CD is prob ok and it could be down to the software.

Safety matches aren't very good. Use plenty of white spirit! if you want it well done right through, could let the CD marinate in the white spirit over night, add a touch of vodka for taste if you like!

nah seriously...

use Nero and make sure you got a good set of CD's. A lot of people think that it saves money getting cheap CD's. Sometimes it's ok, but most of the time it's not, you end up with more coasters!

Try not to pack the CD either.
