Windows 7: can't read disk

can't read disk

My Win 7 Ultimate Toshiba notebook asks me if I want to format a blank CD-R when I put a blank in the DVD drive. Anyone know why? Same with DVD-R blanks. Yes, I only use quality media. Please help.

I believe you need to format them to be able to write to them. Someone will correct me if I am wrong.

You only need to format CD-RW prior to use as you can re-write to them ie. they need a directory structure. Some burner / backup programs can cause similar symptoms, try disabling / unistalling any and see if it makes a difference
