DVD-RW drive not knowing when a disk is inserted

  vodkagal3 13:22 26 Sep 2005

When I try to copy either music or data to a CD my drives tel me that I haven't inserted a CD when I have.
When I put a written CD in it will read /play it perfectly but when I want to doesn't recognise that one has been placed into the drive/drives
Any Ideas please
I am using XP home SP2

I find this happens when drive and disk are not compatible, for example on grounds of speed.

Thanks for that....I have in the past used these CD's successfully so I don't think thats the problem in this case. Any other thought/ideas would be gratefully excepted
