I am trying to copy photos to a Sony CD-R 700 mb disk. I get "Insert a disc. There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable disk into drive E:". I have tried several similar disks. What am I doing wrong?
Try changing the write speed.
Open 'My Computer'. Right click on DVD/CD-R/W drive. Select Properties. Select Recording tab. Make sure 'Enable CD recording on this drive' is checked. Change write speed from 'fastest' to 4X (or as fast as you dare). Click Ok.
