I am running windows xp on my gateway solo laptop. when i put an audio cd or
data cd in the drive, I can play and or see it's contents. when I put a
blank cd it doesn't recognize there is anything in the drive and repeatedly
asks my to insert the cd in the drive. This prohibits my being able to burn
on the cd. These are new cd's and I have used them before to burn data,
photos and music from the same drive on the same laoptop. I have
re-installed the drivers. still nothing. any advice?

If there is nothing on the cd then there is nothing to look at. That is
normal for a cdr. A formatted cdrw you will be able to open if it is blank.
