[quote=pcguy999;2112679]Went to burn CD today and my Benq 1620 in XP and Vista will no recognize that the drive has blank media and therefore opens the tray and Nero prompts me for blank media. Similar things happen in IMGBurn as well.
It will still read burnt CDs I assume the the drive is dead?
Guess its time for a replacement. Looking for an IDE or maybe SATA drive. Howe is the Pioneer 216D for data and image burns. Do not do much in the way of audio discs.[/quote]
Did you try [B]DVD[/B]s? Sometimes a drive will not recognize a [B]CD [/B]but will recognize a DVD.
