I'm am trying to burn music to a CD. When burning, it will not recognize the blank CD in the CD burner and tells me to insert a blank CD when I already have. Solutions are to change to a different kind of CD which I have 4 times now. It also says to change the burn speed to a lower speed and I have done that as well. It is on the lowest burn speed possible.

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.
* the disk you're inserting is not "empty" -- try it on a different computer;
* you should try a different manufacturer of "blank" disks;
* you need to upgrade the "firmware" inside your CD-writer, to recognize more brands of "blank" media;
* the CD-reader is malfunctioning -- when you "cancel" the burn-attempt, and insert a commercially-produced program CD or commercially-produced audio CD, can those disks be properly read?
* you have two CD/DVD devices in your computer, and you're inserting the "blank" disk into the "wrong" device.
Yes you can. It will burn CD or DVD. Get some blank CDs. Insert one into the burner. You should see a window asking what you want to do. Select what best matches your task at hand. It should call up yer burning software. Tell it what you want on it and click on the Burn button.
right click on the drive.... go to properties... under tab recording, remove tick "enable CD recording on this drive" and press apply... after that tick "enable CD recording on this drive" and press OK. It should work.
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).
