Hello,

I have a hp desktop with a cd burner in my home office, I also have one in my kitchen that me and my wife share. The computer in my kitchen recently started not recognizing cds that I had burned from the pc in my home office. I am using nti cd maker. This happened suddenly because cds I burned like a week ago are able to be read in this pc. The error is "device not ready" then when I click retry, I get the same error. Please Help.
