Blank CD not recognized, WHATEVER CD rom drive is installed.
Posted on 2006-06-08
My client has a three year old Dell desktop running Win 2000. The CD drive will play audio CDs and will display data from CDs. If you insert a disk it will show up in "My Computer" and display its title. However, if you insert a blank CD and attempt to write data to it, it will display the following message:
"There is no disk in the drive.
Please insert a writable CD into drive D:\ "
I confidently tell my client that the Cd drive is shot, and replace it. Same error. I replace it again. Same error. These are brand new drives and cannot both be faulty. I installed one in another machine and it worked fine.
What's going on?
