Hi chunky54, welcome.

Try a different brand. I'm having a lot of problems with some Memorex CDRs I bought at Staples. They work in one DVD-RW but not in two CD-RWs on two different computers. I get the same "No disc" message.

I replaced one CD-RW 3 times before I found one that would work with them! What a pain.

The CD drive itself may be going bad or it could be dirty (the laser lens).
