Locate the hard disk

Laptop hard drives are mainly located underneath. A screw holding down a plastic lid covers the drive. In some cases of older laptops the hard drive is slot mounted and you'll have to remove screws underneath and/or on the side to release the drive followed by pushing a switch which well push the drive out.

KDS Laptop CD ''D'' drive won't recognize blank CD WIN ME

On the face of the CD drive drawer, does it say "CD" or "CD-RW" (or "CD-RW/DVD")? If "RW" or "ReWritable" isn't present, you can't write to blank CDs. You can only read prerecorded ones.
