OK...first off...I am a technical dummy. A nice guy, but a technical dummy.
We are trying to rip/burn some audio books on her HP. It allows us to rip, but when we try to burn, we get a message saying it is not recognizing the media in the D: drive.
One, we are using DVD-R discs (when I bought them, she said she had a dvd burner, which she does not. Can you burn audio onto these kind of discs? And if it can, why is it not recognizing it.
I'm trying to do this through her Windows Media Center.
Thanks in advance,

Re: Not recognizing disc in D drive
Hi, well the short answer is NO. You cannot use DVD's in a CD Writer at all. So the simple answer is to get some CD-R and copy the files to them. OR get a Combo DVD/CD writer and install that as well.. and then you can use both..

You will probably find that it is the way you are burning the CD's not the fact that they are burnt that is causing your problem.
When it comes to home made audio CD's there are two ways to go:
Method 1 (MP3 CD - only works with newer CD players):
You essentially copy music to the cd as if it were a usb stick and then click write these files to disk. This method allows for (depending on file size) upwards of 100 songs.
Method 2 (Audio CD - the Red Book method):
In method two you burn a cd in the same way that you buy most CD's from the store. This way allows you to add up to 80 mins of music/audio to a disk (method one is limited to file sizes - method two is limited by the amount of time each song takes up).
Considering that the Red Book method was made commercially available in 1982 (the same year as your CD changer), and that the MP3 CD came into play in about 1999 - it is impossible for your CD changer to support the MP3 CD (unless it has been heavily modified).
You may try burn by CD to CD burn but if you want to select files that you want to burn, you have to ripped the music from the Music CD by using Window Media Player 10 or higher. Or try using software that ripped music from CD.
This is the instruction of CD to CD:
1. Insert the source disk 2. Then hit burn or copy to CD on your HP CD & DVD burner software or application. Then it will be temporarily copied to the hard drive. 3. after it finishes copying the source disk, you will be ask to insert a blank CD then hit continue or OK
Please reply or respond if this doesn't work so that I could provide you another solution and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
If you are using windows Media Player to burn the cd you have to burn to an audio cd. You can only burn to mp3 cd if your car or home system canread them. Wma audio cannot normally be read by car or home audio. The file format is called WAV
I had this jumbled up problem as it wasn't splitting up the tracks ie I had 6 track ones lined up together which put the chapters out of sync. The trick is to load each CD individually and immediately 'rename' each ie name of book, genre, CD1, CD2 etc. Then you can drag and drop into the MP3 player and they will be in the correct order. Worked for me anyway.
Ok try this DO NOT insert the media until you have completed ya assembly... then tell it to "Burn" it will then ask for the media.. at this point insert ya CD... it should be "Detected" and ya Burn should proceed.I have had this work for me before.
Also try Alcohol 120% thats a great Burner. As well as CopytoDVD...
