These disc have a compatbility issue with a lot of computers and players reading from the dark recording surface .

the solution is simple use memorex cdr that have a mirror type recording surface on back the more reflective the recording surface the easier the media is to read stay away from dark recording surfaces.

I have black Memorex CD-R's, which I did not have problems burning on my Dell (Windows Vista) for months. However, now my Dell will not even recognize the discs. I've tried several. I've also tried...

Basically this is going to be either a dirty lens inside (rare) or the drive has just worn outside its operating limits.

You may have noticed that the drive was taking longer to read or seemed to be finding more errors.
Since the system is still finding the drive it won't be a driver or connection problem. What you need to do is try a commercial cd. Doesn't matter what it is as long as it is a commercial. These are made in a different manner so they can be read while your burned cd can't. If you can read it still then you have abit of life left in it as a reader but it won't be accurate enough to burn any cd's. If you try some of the cd;s you have burned in other computers you should find they read just fine unless they were burned while the alignment is out. Then nothing will read them.

This is the typical way cd and dvd drives fail or are at end of life. Laptops tend to do this very quickly but desktops will last much longer. Anyway the only good fix for this is to replace it. A dvd/cd burner can be found for $30 for a desktop. A laptop unit is $100 or so.

I cannot record music on my CD-R from my windows player

Try a different brand. Make sure you do not let auto-run format your disc (for non-rewritable discs) when it is loaded into the burner. I turned off auto-run due to this. RW discs can be formatted.

I hope this helps.

(I've seen different DVD manufacturing processes give a string of "coasters" on a given burner but CDs can have the issue.)

Not readable.

If the disks do not work on any of the three players they are probably faulty, try buying a spare disk of same kind , or writing a disk from a different pack, it it does work then you bought a box of faulty DVDs, ask a refund.
If disk from different box gives same problem when burned on same computer, then there may be a problem with DVD burning software, try doing a system restore to a recent date,
