Hey there. Recently, when i've tried to insert a blank CD/R to burn files, the drive repeatedly tries to read the disk, but as it is blank, will not succeed. For example, when im prompted to insert a blank cd for burning it says there is no CD in drive E and as i have two drives i also tried it with drive D but same problem. Also the icon keeps appearing on the cursor to say that its reading a CD but apparently it's not.

Help appreciated
Thanks.

The problem is still persisting, it seems that everything slows down due to the drive trying to read the Cd.

How old are the drives? Whats the specifications on your computer?

Sorry for the wait.

Sorry for my innactiveness.

I was told by a friend it is because of the autoplay function but i have changed the options so that it takes no action, yet it still tries to read the disk. I have tried burning music files to it when it eventually stops reading but it says 'the CD/R drive is in use' although when i click burn files it says 'please insert a blank CD/R or CD/Rw and i have tried many different brands of blank Cd's to be given the same response.
The drives are fairly old but apparently are up to date, update wise.

Thanks,
Luke.

Have you looked at the 2 articles I linked to?
Have you tried going into the Device Manager, uninstall the player, reboot, and let windows reinstall it?
Have you gone to the manufacturers website, and updated to the latest drivers for that drive?
