CD-RW problems

    My CD-RW has began to behave strangely. When I place a blank CD-R into the drive, Windows simply scans it and reports it as a blank disk. If I try to copy files onto the disk, Windows gives an error message stating that there is no disk in the drive.

    I don't think this is a hardware issu,m because Clone-CD never reports this error, I only have this problem when using WinXP's "Write these files to CD" function.

    Any Ideas?

    Have you ran windows update to get the CDRW burner updates ? they address that problem.

    this also stumped me for a while....but i did notice that clicking on the drive properties (recording tab) there is a box which says "enable cd recording on this drive" - when unchecked it and then re-checked it and went back to the cdrw wizard it started working???

    try it you never know, it might work on yours?
