    I hope to figure out this problem soon because this cd is for my late friends funeral. I am trying to burn some of his favorite songs onto a blank cd but windows media or nero does not detect a disk in the drive. The drive does play cd/dvd fine and I did some burning last week and everything was fine. My device mgr. sees it ok and I have uninstalled and re-installed,updated drivers and cleaned lense with Philips lens cleaner.It is a Lite-on combo model SOHC-5235K and I am running Winxp-sp2.I have an AMD Athlon XP2200+ cpu on an ASUS A7V8X-X motherboard. If you need anymore info please let me know so I can resolve this problem asap.

    Thanks,Scott:confused:

    Try getting the songs ready to burn, click burn and put the CD in when it asks for a disc.

    Hey Cowboy,
    The drive is only a couple years old and it is a dvd writer also. I have tried two diierent makes of disk and neither worked. I don't understand, I used the same disk to burn with last week but it will not work this time?

    allow cd burnind is checked. Everything has to quit working sometime. Maybe it's the time. Thanks for all the suggestions.
