It never goes beyond that. I never get a pop up for what to do with the CD.I have tired numerous suggestions found online from registry ,to services, to Control Panel and etc. Nothing has changed this behavior. I also have a partition program that is not showing the CD drive. However the drive shows in Explorer. In the past I'd click on that and find the installer or setup and go from there.

  2. Cannot burn songs to CD inserted already on to computer Error: insert a blank cd

    Hi

    In order to understand the issue in a better manner, please share the following details.


    • Are you trying to Burn Music on to the DVD inserted?

    • “Only 5 songs on the cd” is it a Read/ Write disk or a Normal disk (copy write CD)?

    Let me inform you, if you have a Normal disk with 5songs burnt and saved you will not be able to Burn the new songs again. Until and unless the disk inserted is a Read/ Write CD.

    Put an empty disk in the drive open my computer and double click on the CD inserted. And check for the status of the CD, if its CD/DVD-RW drive, if any files appear in explorer greyed out then delete them by clicking "Delete these temporary files".

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to fix the issue.

    Method 1: if you are trying to copy the songs to CD, follow the below steps.

    If the CD is copy right protected. You will not be able to copy songs to the computer if the CD is copy right protected.

    Also try to clear the burn list if any old list of songs available and try to copy again and see if it helps.

    Method 2: Windows media player settings troubleshooter

    Also try the Windows media player settings troubleshooter and see if it helps to resolve the issue.


        • Select settings in the drop down menu below search and type
          Troubleshooting.

        • Click on Troubleshooting
          and select the view all option on the left pane.

        • Click on Windows media player settings
          and follow the prompts.
