My CD-ROM drive is not recognizing blank CD-R's. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drives, but it has not worked. Any suggestions?


A CD-ROM will never recognize a Blank CD-R. It is a blank CD. If you want it to burn to the disk you will need to purchase a CD-Burner, and then install the burning program that comes with the CD-Burner.

Burning CD-R


Windows Xp don't have its own CD burner. if you mean Roxio, that is 3 party CD burner.
try a different CD. some time the CD burner detect some smudge at the beginning area, then it tell you the CD is NG.
Try to clean the CD with CD cleaner and clean the CD also.

Some time I have to go through 2-3 CD in order to find one that will work.

Need a schematic diagram

on the left middle youll see sony. go there and download the iso. this is an image file that you can burn to cd. open your burner program and choose burn from image and direct it to the file you download. it will open up a bunch of stuff, or maybe one pdf file, either way, you can at that point burn it and it will become a working cd with your manual and drivers.

P;ease help me. i use real player to burn cds. ive never burt a dvd. but i want to use it now and my player keeps telling me my cd and dvd burners are not detected. why are they not working please help me.


burning and cd requires a cd burner... the fact that you burn cds does not necessarily mean that you can also burn dvd's.. to burn a dvd you need to have a dvd burner unit installed. check on tray that comes out on you cd/burner if it says RW DVD.. if not chances are you only have a cd burner but is not a dvd burner.

I was burning and now I can't burn anymore because i keep getting a message saying that i don't have a dvd burner or that i don't have acsses to the dvd burner


Hi jacquie...
Check these steps..
1. Open the CPU cabin and make sure that the power cable and the data cable to the DVD burner is fixed correctly.
2. Goto "My computer".Right click and click "properties".Goto "Device manager".Make sure your DVD burner is mentioned under "CD/DVD ROM drives".Right click that to find whether your drive is in enabled or disabled state.
3. If your burner is not mentioned under it.Scan for hardware changes.

Hope this info will help u.Bye,Take care.

I cannot burn a music CD from Napster. My blank CD is a CD-R. Do I need RW?


No you do not need RW. With the CD-R you can only burn to it once. With RW you can burn to it multiple times plus erase it.

Most cd burners work with CD+R and CD-R but it is best to be sure.

Be sure to try more than one of your CD-R discs. I've brought out a new cd burner on a warranty repair in the past and found that the customers cd burner was fine and when a different CD-R was tried they were able to burn onto a cd without a problem.

Every cd i put in it cancels the burn and asks for a new cd it they are new cd's. one after another?


The lens on the laser is dusty. You need to pull the drive. Leave the tray open when you remove it. open up the case of the drive. find the tiny lens over the laser and very gently dust off the lens with a Q-tip. Re assemble and install the drive. If it still does not work you need to replace the drive. If you only burn cd's I have a working CD burner you can have free. Geokohler@gmail.com
