The CD-ROM works fine, but the combo drive keeps giving a message saying "Please insert blank disc" when I try to burn a CD from iTunes. However, the drive is listed as working properly and I can eject it using the on screen prompts. Therefore, the it works enough to open and close, and the computer is communicating with it because it can make it eject.
I would buy a new CD/DVD writer, but I can't tell if it is broken or there is another problem causing it not to read the CD-R discs that I have been inserting.
Does this sound like the CD/DVD writer is broken or there is a software problem causing it not to recognize the blank CD's.
Any help would be appreciated.
