My CD burner is not working.

When I use Windows media player it says that Easy creator engine is not installed.

I downloaded Burn4free.

When I try to burn a cd box comes up that says insert CD.

But theres a CD in the drive.

Not sure if the drive is not reading or what.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is this a new or old drive? I recieved one from newegg one time that was busted. Could read CDs but not burn them, the replacement they sent worked perfectly. I also had another drive die on my machine and gave the same symptoms.

I'm not sure what you could do to test the drive other than try it in another computer.

Sorry, I know thats not much help.

What operating sys. r u useing?
does the burner read a cd?
I asume that the comp. recognizes it as a burner. But is the file u r trying to burn \ media or other... is it the right size for the disk than provided? it could be a media \ sound \ video converter that makes a file bigger than the disk then it will tell u to insert a disk.
