When I use "send to drive E" the drive keeps opening saying "insert disc". If I insert a recorded disc it is recognized and Autoplay choices work. Neither cd-r nor cd-rw blanks are recognized as being in the the drive for copying.

Before you can use "send to drive" when it's a cd/dvd you must first prepare the disk by formating it using Roxio or Nero or similar.
I don't recomend this option as it tends to be unreliable. A better option is to make a folder to store files until you are ready to burn them. So make a folder "Burn Files" add it to the send to option.
You can now use send to "Burn Files" when ready to burn, start the burner program that are using and drag the files over or use the add files to burn.
