Question about Dell Dimension E521 PC Desktop
I'm trying to save files to a flash drive and get this error message:"Please insert a writable disc into drive E:."
Posted by Anonymous on
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)

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.

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.

when you try to save or burn any data to disk, you should use burning programs just like nero or any other burning program. at the time when you click the button burn, it always ask you to insert disk such as CD/DVD +R or RW
