Cd drive wont read cdr's says they are blank all types of media

Hi ,

i have a hp lap nx 6110 using windows xp home operating system.

All drivers installe on computer working correctly.

I havnt used the cd drive properly for around a year but ive realised that it doesnt read CDrs properly. Whenever i place a cdr into it , it says the disk is blank and asks what i want to do with it. This doesnt happen when i place a cdrom or dvd in. I have tried many different cds with pictures , bootable cdrs and they are all blank according to the laptop which isnt the case.

pleasseee help.

    i have used several different cdr's including a cdr given to me from a proffesional photography company with pictures . This is nothing to do with the media because all of the disks work on other pcs.

    also it is only cdrs that have written data on them. Disks from hp and music cds all work fine. ONLY Cdr's

    recently i reformatted my computer and placed the operating systemm back on but i dont think this is the problem.

    how do i test if its the cd drive can it be taken out and tried elsewhere

    i have just tried cleaning the lens no change. how ever it does sound like it is trying to read the disk but then fails and says blank cd. this is with 3 different cdrs burnt on different computers. i dont understand how it can read musics software and dvds perfect but then doesnt read ANY cdr's

  • ashleydwarne Feb 06, 2010

This may due to CD drive lens alignment problem or dust is accumulated on the lens. Clean lens using lens cleaner CD and still you are facing problem, then it should be a lens alignment issue. Repair/Replace the burner lens will solve your problem.

This is a common issue and is not an easy one to address. There are several possible causes.
1. The cd-r is weak due to age.
2. The cd-r was never finalized when it was made.
3. The laser in the cd burner is going bad. Note there are multiple lasers

DVD burnner will not burn data files


If you stick an audio CD in the drive will it play? If so then the OS can read the drive, if not the drive could be dirty or just defective. Also, Windows XP will not burn DVDs natively, I recommend downloading this software http://cdburnerxp.se/.

Cd/dvd burning drive ''e'' does not identify an empty disk for burn


When your computer is in POST have you tried entering your CMOS to check that your system is actually recognizing that the drive is physical? If not try that and then check to make sure that the jumpers on the drives are set properly and then reinstall your software and this should correct your problem. Good Luck

Recording tab inthe properties of the cd drive is absent


Are you sure it's a blank CD? You can't write to a CD that has already been written to and "finalized"

If this is a new CD player, it should have the letters CD-RW printed on the front. If not, it's a reader only.

If you've used the CD writer before, go to Control Panel/System/Device Manager, and delete the CD player. Then reboot, and it will discover the player, and install the drivers again.

Hp 1040i xp problem


I'm not sure if this will help you but read this link I'm sending. I went round and round with 3 different highend motherboards and processors and kept getting error after error, everything I read in forums, the tech guys, everybody seemed to go to my memory as the problem but low and behold I wasn't believing them and my research paid off. Maybe the intel/hp problems I was having are related to yours. The acceleration software maybe. I dont know but you might want to give it go. I was a little shocked that my brand new dvd writer intel conflict would cause the blue screen of death. sorry so long but if this helps anyone I'll be glad. Thanks, great days to all, Dave http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00001705&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3422492&lang=en
