I have an HP Pavilion PC, Windows 7, 1 yr old. It has never recognized the presence of a blank writable disc in the disc drive. When trying to save any type of file, it gives a "no disc in drive - insert a disc" message, even when a new writable disc has been inserted. It does recognize and play music CD's with no problem.

I've heard that this is a common problem with HP's. Is there a fix ?

The only time I have experienced this type of error was from one of two things. First the drive itself is faulty. Second the media is not correct for the drive. Just because it is a CD does not meanit will work in the drive. I have a CD burner that will only burn standard looking CD-R's. If I try to use the "colored" ones that appear slightly purple, orange, ect. on the write side it will not recognize the disk.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
