I am unable to get most of my computers to read a blank CD when we are trying to burn music onto them useing media player.

I have tried different computers, and all different types & brands of cd's.

Any suggestions?

The computer ejects them and says put in a blank one, if your lucky and push that same disk back in about 10 times it MIGHT work... but yea, none of the computers want to accept them. Thats why I am thinking it not the computer drives :)

I'm confused.
Once, you say none of THREE computers will accept blank CD, then you say "the computer" (one?)....
Very same CD? Did you try different disk? Is the CD empty, for sure? Did you try different brand of CD?

Try one of these:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
or...
2. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
Restart computer.
or...
3. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
Restart computer.
or...
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.
