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)

SOURCE: My PC could not save file in my flash drive where as folder can.

Maybe the root of the USB drive is protected. If you got any switch for write protection in the USB drive, unlock it and try saving.

Thank you!

Assuming you have already tried a cleaning kit, the unit has probably burnt out the laser and will need replaced. Luckily new DVD+R burners can be found for less than $25.

Computer does not recognize it as a CD RW drive


When you try to write data to an optical disc, you may experience any of the following symptoms:

* You receive various disc write error messages.
* You experience issues with the drive and the built-in recording feature of Windows XP.
* You experience issues with third-party programs that you use to write data to the disc.
* You cannot read the disc in all versions of Windows.
* You cannot read the disc, or some files on the disk, by using an MP3 player.
* When you add files or folders to a disc that already contains data, some files are lost.
* Recording files to the disc is inconsistent.
* The disc recording operation is consistently unsuccessful.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Troubleshooting specific errors
If you experience one of the following errors, follow the appropriate steps to resolve the error.

* There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive.
This error can occur if the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device. This error can also occur if the device driver has been corrupted. To resolve this issue, see Method 3 in the "General troubleshooting" section and Method 1 in the "Advanced troubleshooting" section.

* Drive not accessible, incorrect function
This error message typically occurs when you try to write to a CD-R or a CD-RW, and the Windows XP built-in disc recording feature does not recognize the CD drive as a recordable drive. This error message may also occur if specific third-party programs are installed. For more information about how to troubleshoot this error,

when you access the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the CD-RW drive
* Error Deleting File or Folder.
Cannot delete file name. Files on this CD-ROM drive are read-only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.

This error message can occur because individual files cannot be deleted from the CD-RW. You cannot use the CD disc recording feature of Windows XP for random-access storage while you are writing to disc.

To set the service to Automatic, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
3. Under Service Status, click Start.
4. Try to write data to a CD.

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.
