Won't read disc

When I insert a blank CD-R I get this message; "There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable disc into Drive E."

    Are you sure the CD-R is blank? Did you just pull it from the case? If you are sure that it is a completely blank cd IT could be your burner. Do you use Nero? What kind of burner do you use?
    Try updating and maybe a demo of nero or other burning software.

"Please insert a writable disc into drive E:."


Windows thinks E: is a CD/DVD drive ...this maybe becasue it can't understand the USB stick 'format' (especially if it's come from a Tablet/smart phone)

Try a different USB stick (they are cheap enough these day to just throw away when they start acting up)

Dell gx 260 there is no disc in the drive.


OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.

If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.

Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.

Cdrom doesnt recognise blank dvd. error message


Its only cd writer burner and can only that it can read dvd disc also. That is why its called combo. But burning blank dvd it can't. But if you want buy some dvdburner too.

Philips CDD4851 CD R/RW in my HP Pavillion XT963


Hi,
if the device is being recognised, As D:- Or E:- et,c.
right click on the device, and select options from there.
such as open/explore et,c.
If the disk has been written to in any way shape or form, even the smallest file. then the disk being read will be classed as empty.
try a different CD Disk, And try re-installing your CD writing software.
Hope this helps mike @ Compurepair.

CD-R problem


If this is happening it's usually a sign that your drive is failing as it can no longer read the media type, but just double check, if you are using Nero that you havent got DVD highlighted in the start smart as the media to burn to.
