  1. I can't burn some files to a disc. It's a brand new CD-R disc. I burn some files just 2 weeks ago? I don't know why it says"insert CD-R disc in drive" and I have one in?

    Help please!

    Windows XP with an HP 9500 series.

    I attached a picture of the error.

    Quite often it helps if you just open and close the CD-ROM tray.
    Have you tried another brand of CD-R and/or another burning program?

    I've tried three different types of disc.
    Ya, the open close thing didn't work at all.

    Have you tried any other program, other than the one in your screenshot , to burn with?? Something like CDMate, or Copy To CD-DVD are a couple of good ones. The trial period will at least let you know if it's a software problem, or a hardware problem.

    Thanks, I didn't want to install another program but I guess I have no choice if I want to troubleshoot it.

    I will give it a try.

    You can easily un-install it after you find out what's causing you problems.

    You have MotoX wallpaper? From what little I can see of your wallpaper that just might be a CR :p
