  1. heya guyz,
    i bought today new LG burner, type:
    H55N LG DVDX20 DL
    i try to burn some pictures on it, but i get the following problem:

    There is no disc in the drive.
    Please insert a writable CD into drive E:\.

    now, i know the cd is writable cause i got about 50 cds n i burnt on some of them on another computer.
    i right clicked the device and went to Recording, and i got that thing marked.

    it might be cause i need some updates for the driver?

    Your welcome

    I recommend useing the Nero StartSmart.
    The default settings should be ok for a start.
    Note : Burners can reject certain brands of discs.
    They might have a listing at their website.

    problem fixed, had to use Nero, cause of some problem with windows, and it locks the CD after i put it, so i can't write on it..
    anyway, fixed :)
