    I just replaced our cd player with a dvd burner from lite on. oddly the comp doesn't seem to see a disc in the drive when i put one in. it shows the drive as empty. after opening the cd player several times in sees it then there are no problems. It has burned several discs fine and works perfect except for not seeing the disc at first.

    I have updated the firmware. the comp is a dell with xp sp 1.

    puzzled in anchorage

    Why would that help?? I should have noted that this problem has become progressively worse over the last two weeks. this didn't start happening until a few days after installation. today it wont' see anything in the drive.
