Hi Guys,

I have an ACER PC and have to date had no problems with my 'E' Drive. If I place a Pre recorded music CD into the drive it will recognise it and play the CD. If, however, I select tracks to burn I will go through the routine of selecting the tracks when I then click the button to begin the burn it just keeps on stating that the drive is busy then place a disk into the drive etc. I have tried several different disks too with the same result. Any ideas?

Could be a number of issues to determin :
1) which burner do you have
2) which burnersoftware do you use
3) Which operating system do ou have?

You could try the following :

Rightclick MY COMPUTER
Propperties
Hardware
and delete this E drive by selecting it and press DELETE

Download the latest drivers here

Reboot, wizzard hardware will popup and re-install this device.

Try cleaning the lense with a special vd for that purpose( Costs about USD. 15)

Also the media you are using could not be compatible

I did all this and I still none the better. How come it will play pre recorded CD's and DVD's as well as games but not recognise a recordable disk?
