I have had the above DVD/CD/RAM R/RW for just over two years now. When I try to burn a CD it doesn't show there is a CD in the drive. It plays Compact Digital Audio Discs but not the ones I have made with it. Is it possible the laser has gone. It does burn DVDs OK. Any advice please.

if you have original software it came bundled with maybe a reload to see if that corrects the issue.

Thank you Rtus, I will try the first but I never have temp files on my computer. I clear them as soon as I come off the Internet. I run a safety first computing website. I always defrag anyway part of my sites advice to people, so I have no problems in that area.
