Suddenly all "media not empty"



I have lost the ability to write a CD with either Nero or CloneCD. The programs and windows “properties” say there is blank media there, but when yougo to write on it, the programs abourt saying the media is not empty. (reproducible with several brands of new blank media).

Someone had loaded a copy of pinnacle system 8 on the machine and I recall it used CDILLA or somesuch to prevent CD copying and it could cause this. I searched the registry and couldn’t find any CDILLA references though.

Any ideas on what to try next?
