Question System does not recognize CD-RW disc

sponsored links
My system (Dell Dimension 700 with windows ME) does not recognize a CD-RW when inserted in the D drive. When I insert a disc that I have burned and go to "run". to verify the burn, I get the message "Insert disc in drive d". I remove and reinsert with the same result. I haven't tried to record before, but now wish to burn a backup of some files. I have an external drive burner with Nero Express". I'm a novice and it is probably due to my ignorance of proper burning preparation. A music CD works fine. Can anyone enlighten me?

Electric man, it could be as simple as the brand of CD-RW you are using. I would try a different brand. Myself I use memorex platinum (made in Taiwan) with no problems. Most people prefer something made in Japan if you can find it. Occasionally I do have to remove and reinsert but, I see you have done that.
