    Is this on the market anymore? Does the maker exist anymore, It seems no one knows how to fix it. I went out and brought Music CD's and it still doesn recognize it.

    Sorry RJMcClosky but maybe I didn't say it right:



    the pack says CD-RMusic
    for Audio recording
    Up to 32x 80 min 700mb

    in the bottom left hand corner it says



    compact
    disk
    DIGITAL AUDIO

    Recordable



    It still says NO DISK



    it won't play anything on that side either :>(

HI when i put disk in cd rom drive the computer only reads for about 3 seconds and then the message says insert a disk..my son has been burning a lot of disks lateluy and not sure why it broke so soon,only...


Loading new device-drivers will not help.
In the first few seconds, the drive is trying to read the first few blocks of data from the media, to see if it is a "data" or "music" or "blank" CD. If nothing can be read (dead laser?) then you get the "insert a disk" message.

> do I need a new unit?

Yes; spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Cd burner


You may want to double-check the "error" message. Normally, when you insert a blank CD-R or CD-R/W you'll see a pop-up message that says something like, "you've inserted a blank CD. What program do you want to use to put something on it?" And then it will give a list of programs like Windows Media Player, Nero Burning ROM, Roxio, MyDVD, etc. The last two choices are "Open a writeable folder" and "Do nothing." The next to last, the open folder, option is the CD recording option for Windows. Once you've put copies of that data into the new window click on the "burn these files to disc" link on the left side or located under the File menu at the top of the window.

Now, if it truly is telling you that you have to insert a blank CD, then you may have one of two problems. Either the CD you're putting in is NOT actually blank or the drive is having problems recognizing the media. To test the first scenario, try the disc on another computer. If it's truly blank, then try uninstalling the CD burner from your Device Manager located in the Windows control panel. Double-click on the System icon > Hardware tab > Device Manager > click on the (+) symbol next to DVD/CD-ROM drives and then highlight your Sony CD burner > right-click and in the menu choose Uninstall. Reboot your system and let Windows redetect the drive and reinstall the drivers (You may want to have any install discs handy, just in case Windows asks for them, but not likely).

I hope that helps!

Transfering my video tapes to DVD


A couple of quick observations: -If you have two or more optical drives you could be inserting the disk in the wrong one. -You may have just misspoke when you said *insert into the DVD/CD burner drive a CD-R disc* but just to make sure you need to be inserting a blank DVD disk and not a blank CD. No offence intended, especially since I?ve made both of these mistakes in the past myself :)
