Windows 7: "Burn" CD rejects disk

"Burn" CD rejects disk

When I attempt to burn a CD, with any of several programs, and insert a new blank CD-R disk, it is rejected, with the message "Insert a blank disk in the E drive." I tried different blanks from different manufacturers. I don't know if "E" is the CD drive; it is the only on on my HP Touchsmart 600.

Go to 'Device Manager' & uninstall it. Disconnect everything except mouse, monitor & keyboard. Switch pc OFF, it will be re installed on start up, reboot again. Ensure no disc is loaded.

I don't understand, Roderunner. Uninstall what? The only thing connected to my PC besides mouse & keyboard is a printer, disconnect that?

zammer,
Give us a clue as to what we are dealing with by filling out your system specs.

Here is how to do that:

UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS


User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |


Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

Do me a favor. Please add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.

Provide full windows version info, such as provided by Speccy:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.

In "Computer" it says under "Devices": DVD RW DRIVE :E, and REMOVABLE DISC :F.
There is only one disc slot on the HP. I can play CDs in it. The problem arises when I try to burn them.

Good.

Now I know this sounds trivial but... the problem is either hardware or software.

Since this is a desktop, what's the chance that you have an extra cd/dvd unit around or have a friend with an extra? The idea would be to disconnect your present cd/dvd unit, connect the other one, do NOT help win 7 but let win 7 decide the best driver for your cd/dvd.

Now if the trial hardware works fine, you have your answer.

Is this a possibility for you?
