I have tried several programs including Nero, ExpressBurn, and WMP11 to try to burn my DRM un-protected audio tracks (I used to be able to using the same blanks I am using now) but cannot get the drive to recognize my blank CD-R. I can watch and burn DVDs and playback audio cds. I have searched the forums, cleaned my registry, uninstalled Nero, re-installed Nero, used the Nero Cleaning Tool, re-installed Nero. Still doesn't work. My PC doesn't show the pop-up when I enter a blank CD-R and the properties of the drive say 0 used, 0 free. I have been trying to fix it for almost a week, but no luck. I know a lot of people are having similar problems. Please Help!!
