I have a Dell Dimension 8100 with an NEC -NR7800a burner and WinXP Pro..

been burning disks for months without any problems! now all of the sudden when I put a blank disk in, it keeps spinning and spinning and sees no blank disk present in the drive..
I use Nero burn, when I try and burn something, the disk just gets kicked out and it says "insert an empty medium to write to"

this started happening to me last week but the windows update "hot fix for cd burners" fixed it (temporarly) but now it's back..

any ideas how to fix this? I have so much stuff I need to back up :(
