    I've been trying to burn a cd, but it keeps saying "please insert a blank disc." I am using brand new CD-R. I've tried, drag and drop, WMP, and Roxio 7.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks,

    Matt

    OK here's two problems it could be....
    1. Have you got several CD drives? If the burning software is pointed at the wrong CD drive, it could cause this error.

    2. The 'brand new disc' might be a dud. What brand, type, age, etc etc is it? Some CDR drives (esp older ones) have trouble with some variations of blank media.

    Please can you post back some details about which burning software you're using and describe your brand and model of CD drive. Also the disc type?

    Maurice19 - It is a dell xps m140 laptop, it only has 1 drive. It is less than 1 year old. The cds are Memorex CD-R and they work when my friend used his desktop.

    Jimmyt71 - the autoplay function does work.


    I just tried to burn some different songs and it started working. I haven't the slightest clue what I did differently.

    Thanks for you quick responses!
