Will not recognize blank cds, i.e. will not burn

  1. I have the latest version of WMP 11 and Windows XP.

    When I make a playlist and click "Start burn", I am prompted to insert a
    blank disc. I insert a blank disc and close the drive, and without burning a
    single byte, it says "Burn complete." So I click "Start burn" again, and it
    spits out my blank disc and asks me to insert one. No matter how many blank
    discs I try, and no matter how many brands I try, nothing works. Even
    Windows Explorer recognizes the discs as blank, but WMP will not.

    I had this exact problem with the first version of the Zune software as well
    (which is modeled from WMP), but Zune tech support's fix was complex and
    seemed unrelated to WMP, so I don't remember it.

    Help! There's no other way to burn my DRMed WMA files.

    Are you using Roxio software?
    If yes, try exiting Drag-to-disc.
