I am trying to burn some music CDs to use in the car for my father for Christmas. All I end up with are blank CDs. I would greatly appreciate your help.
I have Windows Vista and have kept up with all the updates. I have tried both Verbatim and Memorex CD-R. I have tried both Windows Media Player and Arcsoft (set to audio CD). I have tried two DVD RW drives, one internal and a new external drive.
Windows Media Player looks like it's working, no error message, but it just ejects a blank disc (Vista wants to format it again when I reinsert the CD). Arcsoft stops at the 10% point, saying there is an error writing the disc.
This doesn't help me with making the CDs for my father, but as a test, I burned some mp3 files to a data CD. I could clearly see the tracks had been written, but again, Vista wants to format it again when I reinsert the CD.
I suspect something in Vista isn't right since I've used 2 different drives and CDs, but I'm at a loss. Again I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you very much.
