HI all

i recently bought a new cd rw (artec 48x )
installed it a couple weeks ago and everything has been fine,until now it does not seem to recognise anything. i insert a cd and i get the little disc showing on my cursor as if it is reading the cd but thats as far as it goes, if i try writing a cd with nero the cd tray opens asking for a disc even though theres a blank one in there

any ideas

im running xp

thanks in advance

Have you added anything new to the system recently? Hardware or software?

the latest Nero ( 5.5.10 ) ? Have you disabled the inbuilt CD burning programme in WinXP ?

and right click your drive.Then Properties, Recording and take the tick out of " Enable CD Recording on this drive ". : }

Hi i have done that and its no different, nero still kicked out the cd saying that the drive was empty

What about my question shippy

  shippy 21:26 27 Jan 03

sorry did not mean to ignore you but got caught up in joe ideas

anyway the answers no the only thing i added is the latest version of nero and that worked ok

you've not messed with any oter configurations/settings? Sorry to ask but the slightest change can change things a lot

  shippy 21:31 27 Jan 03

no
i have learnt my lesson there (long story)

do you think it could be worth taking the drive out and re installing it

  Elrond 21:39 27 Jan 03

Certainly worth a go.
