I was burning off a handful of CD-Rs when, after 3 or 4 succesful burns, I got the error message: ‘Please insert an empty disc to write to’. I tried several other blanks in my Philips pack and got the same message, Thinking I might have a faulty batch I tried some Verbatim - same error message.
I have tried both reinstalling the Nero software from the original installation disc disc and updating the Liteon firmware - no change. The Liteon helpboard, unhelpfully, said try installing my Drive in another PC to verify its workability - like I have more than one PC in the house!
Apart from seeking a solution (which may be ‘buy another Drive’) I’m curious as to why empty CD-Rs are suddenly not being recognised.
