All the enabling actions have been set, yet it wont recognize a blank disc. Thanks. mj_hess2004

It sounds like the CD player is having a case of hiccups. I think the problem lies in the internal power circuitry. I suspect the issue has to do with the CD registration circuitry. No, this has nothing to do with whether the CD is an original or a copy. Instead, it has to do with the CD player's ability to recognize the physical disc.
When you insert a disc, the normal course of events is the servo registers or recognizes the disc as a CD and then moves the read head (the one containing the laser) into the 1:1 position so that it recognizes the first track and the first piece on the disc. Since all designs are, in general, based on the same principles, this step is either controlled by an sensor linked to a microswitch or it is controlled by a sensor that feeds positional information to an ECU (electronic control unit) within the player that compares the disc information to its programming.
If the disc is correctly positioned, the ECU tells the circuitry to start things up and tunes come out of the speakers. If it is not positioned, then the ejection circuitry fires up and the disc pops out. Here's the rub, as an oldtime poet used to say, if there's an issue with this circuitry your player should be replaced. It is possible that the positioner can be readjusted or that the positioning sensors can be realigned -- two steps that I would suggest you take next (you will need the service manual for your player for the instructions) -- otherwise you are looking at replacement of the unit.
I had this happen on my Ford. I used a blank CD and pushed it partially into the slot to push the stuck disc back in. At the same time, pressing the eject button. I ruined the disc that was in there (scratched badly) but it did eject in the end.
If this is a consistent symptom that occurs with all your cds....I would have to say the laser in the cd player is no longer working. You may try cleaning it, there are cd cleaners that are 15$ that u can try.but i think you'll find its out . sorry
Grab a cleaning disc it is shaped like a regular cd but it has a row of soft bristles on the bottom side for this exact purpose. another thing I want you to try is use a different brand of writable disc and lower the burning speed. let me know if this fixes this issue.
I think perhaps you will find the drive does not have the proper driver support. Go to Control panel, system, device manager. Any red Xs or yellow asterisks? This means Windows does not recognize the device. You can delete the offending device and Windows should try to reinstall it, or click update driver, or do a search for drivers by model number. If you get the right driver, the drive is good, and Windows recognizes it okay, you should be good to go. I am also assuming you have burner software that will work with that drive. I hope this helps lead you to your problem.
Your cd or the data on the cd cannot be recognized by the cd player in your car. Don't burn in .wmv/.awav/etc. formats. Burn in a universal format that plays on a standard walkman cd player or in a stereo. PC only formatted files or discs simply won't play in a car cd player.
Some recordable compact disc media, such as CD-R and CD-RW, may not comply with the standard CD format used in automotive CD players. When these CD's are used, customers may encounter error messages, skipping, or delaminating of the labels, which can cause an eject failure. It is important to question whether these kinds of CD media are being used. When customers encounter these symptoms, check the system with a known playable CD. Explain that the media may not be compatible with some automotive CD players. Replacing or exchanging the CD player will not address these issues.
