I have an HP Writer cd52.
My XP-Pro partition has up to date McAfee AV.
My cd52 burnere can’t “see” a music disc every now and then.
That’s not unusual.
However, now it can’t “see” data on CD-R that it used to recognize.
The media is Sony.
XP-PRO with SP2 thinks there’s no disc in the drive.
I can or could “see” the music disc in my W2K-Pro partition with SP4 that couldn’t be seen in XP-PRO.
After I updated McAfee on my W2K partition, it took several attempts to be able to “see” that same music disc.
Low and be hold, I could see data on my Sony CD-R disc.
I tried several other Sony CD-R’s with data on them but W2K couldn’t “see” them.
I reinserted the first Sony CD-R that W2K had seen just minutes before and when I tried to browse the disc I got a message to please insert a disc.
Why are my discs playing hide and seek with me?
