    Duh! Does the term "Blank" give you a hint?

    BLANK, means just that....it's BLANK, there is nothing to read, NO Directory, NO nothing!

    The only thing that will look for and be satisfied with a Blank CD is a CD burning program, like Nero.

    If you try to burn to a disk that is NOT blank, the burning program will reject it.

    But, have you now got it working?
    If not, maybe I didn't give you the information you needed.:eek:

    I've been a PC tech since I built my first one ~1980.
    Since then I've probably done every dumb thing that can be done to a PC.:(

    My very first service call on a PC was to change the hard drive in an IBM AT.
    I couldn't find the screws to remove the case. I didn't know they were behind a plastic panel, held on by Velcro.
    Joe, my PC tech support guy, laughed like a maniac when I told him I couldn't find the screws.:-D:-D:-D
    I'll never forget that lesson! ;)

    Experience is truly, the best teacher.;)

    Cheers mate!
