I Have XP3 and when I try to burn a cd or dvd. The burner automatically ejects the cd and a message pops up that tells me to insert a blank disc. Do you think this is a software issue of hardware problem. I have been struggling with this issue for a few months and I have already looked in to fixing the registry and that is not the issue.

Re: VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE
You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you view the contents of the disc, you might notice many
files and folders. So what happened to the ISO file? Remember that the
ISO file is just an image of what should be on the CD or DVD. That ISO
file contained the information for all of the files you see on the disc.
You must have a CD or DVD
burner to write ISO files to CDs or DVDs. You will not be able to burn
ISO files if you only have a standard CD or DVD drive.
