keep getting "The loaded disc is not empty. Please insert an empty disc and try again"

Why do I keep getting these messages.  I have put in two brand new Fuji CD-R all purpose 40x cds and I keep getting this message.  I m using cdburnerxp pro 3.

Some possibilities are incompatible media with your burner, or the software doesn't support the drive.  Has this drive ever worked with this software?

yes but using a different media (cd-rw vs what I am trying now cd-r)

I suspect media incompatability, then.  Try a different brand of CD-R (at least they are cheap to buy).

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I now suspect it is software... I used NERO and it worked with the same media.

Try Burn At Once... it is free and since it works with its on low level driver it may be able to identify your media.

mark has a good point, but as long as you're using a CD type that's supported by the drive, any "Not Empty" error you get has to be software related.

 Bigdogdman.. that's what I've said that's why I've directed him to download a different software. Burn At once is quite good and even if it doesn't recognize you could check the options to "force execute" and "raw right" "ignore errors" it will bypass most of the errors you get.
