CD / DVD Problems
I have a Dell Inspiron 5150. Windows XP Pro, It works fine, with the exception of when I wanted to burn a CD the other day, now it will not identify blank CDs at all. It will read CDs with information on them, but not identify/write to them.
This is what the MS CD Writing Wizard says:
The disc in the drive is not writable DC or it is full.
Please insert a blank, writable CD into drive D:, or insert a disc with enough free space to hold all the files you have selected for writing to CD.
Note: A writable CD is a compact disc that can be converted to a conventional or audio CD by a CD recording drive (CD-R or CD-RW). After being recorded, the CD is capable of being used in any computer CD-ROM drive or audio CD player.
I had someone tell me the laser beam is burned out and I need a new drive from Dell. I don’t know what to do.
Any help is appreciated.
