My CD drive that I normally use to burn CD's is not recognizing blank CD's. I have put an audio CD in the drive and it recognized and played it. However, when I put a blank CD in it will not recognize it. I am trying to burn some mp3 files to a blank CD.

Things I've done
*Tried 3 different blank CD's
*Played audio CD with the same drive as I am attempting to burn with the blank CD.

I know that the drive is operating because I can right click it and click "eject" and it will come out like normal. When I click on my DVD drive (different than CD drive) it opens a page that has nothing in it, like normal.) But when I click on my CD drive (the one i am trying to burn a CD with) it says "Please insert a disk into drive D:"

I went to Windows Media Player and I got the songs on a burn list but it won't let me select the correct drive to burn them to. The one it has by default is called "CD Drive E:" which that one doesn't work. I am trying to get D: to work. Remember, I have played an audio CD with the D: drive like normal. Then I inserted a blank CD in drive D: but it says "Please insert a disk into drive D:" Also when I select "drive D:" with Windows Media Player it says, "Please insert a disk into drive D:" too. What should I do to fix this?

I have Windows XP Service Pack 3 installed. I also have every driver installed on my computer. I went to Microsoft.com to check my computer for updates but the only update they said I needed was an update for internet explorer.

I know drive D: is recognized by the computer partially because I can click "eject" and it will open.
