    windows can't read disc in drive E


    put dvd in drive, window pops up asking what i want to do, click on burn to cd/dvd. window pops up with "files to be written to disc" with desktop.ini already in window (does this file HAVE to be there to burn cd/dvd correctly????), drag what i want to burn to window then go to share, click on burn to dvd. after doing so window pops up telling me windows can't read disc in drive. was working fine about 3 weeks ago then all of a sudden this starts. what do i need to do to get the "cant read" message to stop popping up and and start burning cd/dvds again without having to go through a million other things to do it? have checked drivers and according to windows the best driver is already there.

    :)

    CD/DVD Drive not reading discs


    Strange part is why it shows as a Blu-Ray drive. What is D: since it jumps to E: ? Seen other posts like this were ones were not recognized at all after upgrade, but yours is recognized, listed wrong and not reading discs at all.
