Cool Re: Cd/dvd Drive Doesnt Recognize Blank Cd/dvd

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.

Cheers!

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

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.
I'll never forget that lesson!

Experience is truly, the best teacher.

Cheers mate!
