My cd is well ....i have no idea

I am able to play games and burn music to unto my computer, but It will not accept my cdr- to load files unto the cdr. This just happened recently,and I am not sure what to do. My cd writing wizard keeps on saying that my Blank CD_-R is full, and not writable. Then it will sometimes say Please put a writable disc in. I do have a Writable disc in.
It is Sony CD-R 1X-4x. Thanks Sheila
My computer is a Compaq -V2710CA

Sounds like a tough problem to have because half of the CD drive is working fine (the reading part) but half isn't (the writing/burning part).

Here are a few suggestions:

1) try a different CD writing program, if the Wizard says the CD-Rs are full, try a version of Nero or a freeware burning program.

2) if, when you load the blank CD, Windows says that it's unable to burn it, it might not be a CD that your burner can recognize. If you are using different or new CDs, try another one or borrow someone else's blank CD. I've had it happen where a set of CDs that I bought were bad and couldn't be used. Also, some cheap CDs don't work on some CD burners.

3) It might be a bad CD drive. If it's an older computer, you might have to get a new CD drive. Before doing this, I'd try reinstalling the software and drivers for your CD burner and try both the suggestions from above. Good luck

My CD shows empty when i finished copying?


I am going to assume that you have a PC running Microsoft Windows OS.

Have you ever tried to play an MP3 file stored on the computer's disk. For example, download the following: Example , by right-clicking that link and selecting to save it to your desktop. Then go to your desktop and double-click it. If it plays, note which application runs it.

If it doesn't, then you may want to install one of dozens of music players you can download and use for free. For example: Windows Media Player or iTunes.

Even if playing a file from your desktop works, it might be good to install a fresh copy of the latest of one of these players.

Next, I would have you load your CD. Note what happens carefully. It may be different once you install a new player. If a dialog pops up and offers to play the CD, then note the name of that application. However, typically they will not offer to play a disk of MP3s because that should be a data disk and not an Audio CD. Tell me how that CD was created. In any case, when that dialog comes up, instead of choosing to play the CD, choose to Explore or Browse. Then copy the files you find on it to your desktop. Now try to double click those files and see if they play. Are they MP3 files? If they are not MP3s, then you probably have an Audio CD and is not well written or your drive is "tired of life." Try another Audio CD that is a commercial product and see if that plays. If so, blame the CD. If it doesn't, then blame the drive. You may be able to update the driver for your drive, but then we are getting much deeper into it than your basic question.

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.

DVD/CD-R/W NOT WORKING AT ALL?


Go into MY computer and make sure your dvd/cdrw is being shown in there. IF its in there then try to see if it will recognize anything you put in there. Try different things such as a music cd and then a dvd movie. If it recognizes one but not the other then your drive is bad. If your computer is not seeing the drive at all then it could be a virus or your cables need to be reconned to the drive. No driver is needed, just software to burn stuff and a dvd player to play dvd's.

you need filtercheck 4.6 at cdr-zone.com forums. click yes to all the prompts and it removes all filters for burning apps.
reinstall your favorite burn app if it doesn't burn after this process is complete and you are done.
