When inserting a blank or recorded cd in my cd drive, the properties show "0 bytes used,0 bytes free" and the pie chart is all blue. 

           If I select "open" all the files are there.

Can anyone suggest a reason or resolution for this.  I am using Windows 7 premium, on a Toshiba Satellite C660.

 Have you cleaned your CD/DVD drive lately?  They get dirty over time.  You can get a cleaning disc for stores that sell computers.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Go to the Device Manager, scroll down to DVD/CD-ROM drives and double click on it.


When the tree expands double click on your optical drive.


Click on the Drivers tab, when it opens click on uninstall.


Restart your computer.


When the computer restarts the optical drive will be recognized as new hardware and drivers will be assigned to it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
