    I have windows xp home and my cd burner is not working.
    Its been like for for a couple of days now. I went into device mgr and it said that it was working prop. I also went and did a driver update but it has the newest drivers. But when i try to run a disk or burn one it say to insert disk... What should i try??????

    I'd start by making sure that the cables are seated properly. You could also delete it from device manager, reboot and let it be discovered again, that sometimes sets them straight.
