ERROR MSG: Insert writable disc into Drive E
I have Windows 7 and am trying to burn pictures to a DVD+R DISC. I get the error message: Insert writable disc into Drive E. What is wrong?

Hi there! Welcome to TSG forums.
Have you tried using a different brand of disks? I had one computer that was 'fussy' about what brand I tried to use in it...

No I haven't tried a different brand, they are Memorex. I had no problem copying to Memorex CD-R.

you might use a laser disc cleaning disk on the drive. Also blow out any dust in the drive with canned compressed air. Then I would try a different disk to see if that makes any difference..

How are you trying to burn the files? Using a program? Windows drag and drop?
