Question about Compaq CD Drives
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
