I am trying to burn a cd from my roxio audio central and during the burn setup it tells me that there is no disc in the drive, and theres one in there. I have burnt cds before with the same discs and now I just cant get it to work. I have tried several brands of discs and still have the same problem.
There could be several reasons why drive can't read and write to the cd .....a) cd drive head could be dirty b) cd has factory defect c) software setting is wrong. To resolve a) try cleaning the cd head b) replace with other brand and new cd c) change settings, write speed, etc....

Try a different type of CD. If you're using CD+R discs, change to a CD-R and see if it works better for you. Also, make sure you finalize your session to verify that olde CD-ROM readers will read the disc. If you're burning MP3 files, make sure you're converting them to audio files on the way to the disc, as older stereos will not read MP3 files.

All this does is allow you to see your desktop on a monitor and play some games.
For burning discs you need a cd/dvd burner. This is a cd/dvd drive that you can use to read and write cd's and dvd's
You say that your program is telling you that there is no disc in the drive. (Your CD/DVD burner drive) You can burn audio discs so this tells me you know that much and you have blank cd's so my two things I need to tell you are these..
1. To make a DVD or Burn a DVD you need a BLANK DVD disc in your burning drive. Maybe you have mistakenly placed a CD in the drive instead?
2. Your Burner drive may not burn DVD's only CD's?
Check on the door to the drive that opens to allow you to place discs into it. It should say something like DVD multi recorder or Compact Disc re-writeable. If it does not say DVD on it anywhere your drive is not capable of burning DVD movies and therefore you will need to purchase another burner.
Start by checking your WINDOWS CONTROL PANEL. Be sure there are no errors for your drivers. IF you have your proper drivers for your DVD Drive, totally remove ALL drivers and then restart your system... still have problems?
Next TOTALLY DELETE your Roxio program... somewhere on the Internet there is a tool that will do just that. You want to try your best to CLEAR and ALL hard drive and REGISTRY traces of ROXIO program(s)!
Just ONE bad ROXIO/REGISTRY problem can have you chasing your tail for days/forever.
With ROXIO deleted, try one of the FREE DVD burning programs to assure it's not really a DVD problem?
I just did a GOOGLE check and there are tons of hits for you.
I also have the TSST cd/dvd with the same problem but I just realized that is a comflict between all these programs I have installed (Windows Media Player, Sonic and Roxio Easy Creator 6). WMP will not even show it, then I went to Roxio audio central an it worked perfectly. I tried to change the default back to WMP but it wont take it. I believe this happens because Roxio was the last I installed and took control of the sound. Hope this help. I will be uninstalling my WMP and installing it again so that I can keep it as my first choice.
If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.
Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:
Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...
