    Is the disc CD-R or CD-RW?
    only CD-RW is reusable.

    Ok, the only other thing that I can think of is right-click the drive in my computer, go into properties, recording, and make sure the box is checked for enable this device for cd recording.

    Thanks Kpo6969 for trying to help me out. I have no problem burning blank cds, my problem is reburning a recordable cd. The player does not recognize it and the erase button is not available.

    Do you have any other burning software on your computer? ie: Roxio, Nero?
    You could have a conflict if you have 2 packet writing programs. Or you could try formatting the CD if you can.

    have you tried formatting the disc as CD-RW?
