My HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8400B will not write to a blank CD-RW disk

My HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8400B will not write to a blank CD-RW disk. It will not even read the blank disk.

It will read and play music CD’s.

It is installed in a Compaq Presario Pentium 4 running Windows XP. When I troubleshoot the device, the system tells me it is working properly.

If the problem is with the speed of the disk, how to I find out what kind of blank media to use? Any other suggestions?

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

It doesn’t recognize and can’t write to any CD-R or CD-RW disks? Has it stopped responding to blank CD disks suddenly? In that case, ask Compaq.
