I'm trying to backup some file onto a disk. In the past I've gone to Windows Explorer, then right clicked and did a "copy and paste". But now when I go to paste a message comes up to "insert a disk", but the problem is that I've already inserted a disk....? Then when I right click to try + paste the file I'll get another message that says "please insert a disk", but again there's ALREADY a disk there...
I'm getting frustrated and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try going to the Device Manager, uninstall the drive, then reboot, then check to see if when Windows re-acquires the drive, if the problem has been resolved.
