When I insert a cd the light blinks but it doesn’t read. The problem started when I tried to format a DirectCD disc. My burner is a TDK 32x10x40 VeloCD, but I failed to notice that the CD-RW discs were only compatible with ultraspeed drives 16x-24x. When I tried to format I got the message medium not ready. Ever since then my burner won’t read. I tried swapping out to my CD-ROM to see if it was a software problem, but I got the same response, blinking light won’t read. I’ve never had a problem with the burner before and all the cable connections should be correct because I just swapped out my CD-ROM for the burner. Can somebody please help me?
