CD Rewriter does not recognise media Reward $1
Created by Cherishscope, 41 days ago, 297 views

CD Rewriter internal to my PC does not seem to recognize media.
In Disk Management it recognizes the device, but the right panel opposite is blank (white) and the left hand panel says 'no media'.

Being unable to read recordable discs can be a difficult issue to resolve because of all the different possible causes of this problem. Below is a listing of several steps and recommendations that can be taken to help identify the cause of the issue or resolve this issue.
Drivers
Verify you have the latest drivers installed for the CD-R or recordable drive. There are numerous driver-related issues that may cause a CD-R drive or other recordable drive to stop reading a CD-R disc. If you are running Microsoft Windows, verify your drive is detected and listed in Device Manager with no conflicts or errors.
If Device Manager detects an error on the drive or if it has any other drives listed with errors, remove them and reboot the computer to let Windows re-initialize the drive.
If Windows shows no errors, the above steps did not resolve the issue, or you are running an operating system other than Windows, check with the drive manufacturer for updated drivers.

Could be faulty or damaged disc, try another disc and see if it works, if it doesn't then your CD drive is damaged or no driver installed for it...
