Blank Cd Disks

By john.cb1 ·
I have 2 cd roms : I ordinary cd and a cd/dvd rewritable.
For quite a while now I have been able to put a blank cd into the cd rom and it has shown me that there was nothing on it, but now it tells me that is inaccessible.

With the cd/dvd rewritable I have again put a blank cd writable in it and it asks me how to run either as folder in Windows explorer or a win amp file. I click for a windows explorer and it goes onto the f drive(where my cd/dvd rewritable is ) and shows me that there areno files in it. I could then copy and paste a file on to it(like a floppy drive) once again I am unable to do this and it tells me that it is in accessible.

Both cds run when there is data on them, but not when they are blank.

I would like to copy files onto a blank cd writable again.

Can you tell me what is wrong and what I can use

John

First try to uninstall the burning software after shutting of all running programs (including & especially AV programs), except Explorer (can't tell you in specifics how, since you didn't list the Operating System installed), then restart the computer (important!), shut off all programs except Explorer again, then re-install the software properly again. I'm only assuming Windows as you mentioned Windows Explorer.

Check first though in the device manager to make sure both CD units show up as installed, that the driver packages are complete and present, and there are no addressing problems w/ the hardware itself. Probably more a software issue though. Updated drivers never do hurt however "if" installed properly.
