CD-ROM not reading any data


Either the CD/DVD drive is bad or the driver software for the disc is bad. If you can boot from the CD/DVD it's probably software.

How to Erase a Burned CD


CD-RW stands for CD re-writeable. This type of disc can be written on or "burned" multiple times. However, in order to burn music or data onto a CD-RW that already has something on it, you must first erase the current contents of the disc. No special software is needed to do this, as you can do it with the Windows Media Player program, which already comes installed on all computers with the Windows operating system. Regular CD-R discs cannot be erased or reused--the discs must be labeled as CD-RW.

Instructions
Step 1.
Click on the "Start" menu button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. Select "Windows Media Player" from the pop-up menu.
Step 2.
Select the "Library" tab in the main Windows Media Player screen.
Step 3.
Insert the CD-RW that you want to erase in the CD-ROM drive. Close the "AutoPlay" window if it appears.
Step 4.
Right-click the CD-ROM drive in the "Navigation" pane on the left side of Windows Media Player. Select "Erase disc" from the drop-down menu. This will automatically erase the contents of the disc.

I try to burn a playlist to a cd using Windows Media Player. Message says "no disc in drive" even when there is a disc in drive.


If your computer cannot burn CD's (try to burn any file to it) then it's probably gone bad and will have to be replaced.
If Media Player is the only app that will not burn the files, perhaps you need to download the latest version of Media Player. Or, perhaps, uninstall it and reinstall it.

Hi Charles,

The issue is due to the driver corruption. You need not worry, there is a simple solution for this.

Go to device manage --> right click on your CD/DVD drive and then click uninstall and then restart your computer. Do not keep any CDs while you do this. Just try this out.

Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

Hello
Are you using windows media player or roxio or any burning software?
You will need burning software for blank disc to be recognized.

Hope this helps.

Neither CDs nor DVDs will insert into the player to be read


It sounds like there is aother disc stuck in the CD player. while unplugged from electrical source, open up the cover and see if there is anything in it's way. You might think there is nothing inside, but perhaps someone was there before you!

The Best!

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...


hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)
