Can anyone help please !
Every time i put a blank CD into my CD-RW drive i get the message "Please insert a blank CD " or similar.Could you tell me how to check if my CD driver is faulty or the driver.Being a bit of a numpty with these things single syllable words would be helpful.

When do you actually get the message??? and what operating system are you using??

Incompatible software after Windows updates

Incompatible disks with the writer


Software conflicts - too many programs

Old faded disks

Could go on for ever. Have to admit I've got a Teac drive on one machine that has always been a basket case.

A new drive will cost you £15 and take 5 minutes to fit. You'll save on wasted disks.

Thanks one and all. For the sake of £15 - £25 i may as well get a new drive.Then again ,any recommendations of make and where to get it from.

Watford, amazon, simply.

You've reminded me to stop wasting disks using my Teac - I keep forgetting. I then revert to old disks on an old Dell and they work fine.

Don't forget you could get a dual layer 16X DVDRW for not much over £30 that will also do CD/CDRW.

Novatech have the NEC3500A dual layer for around £44 in black or beige, not the cheapest but high quality and quick. click here
