Have a look at the CD Writers Properties... look at the Recording tab, is the box checked next to the statement "Enable CD recording on this drive"

Does this drive recognize original CDs and DVDs that already have data on then fine? Does it recognize burned CDs that already have data on them fine? Burned DVDs that already have data on them fine?

"Please insert a disk into a drive".
"I dont have Nero installled in my computer."

If your XP has SP2 or SP3 updates installed, it has a simple CD burning program built in, but it DOES NOT support burning DVDs. It won't recognize a blank DVD.

What type of burnable disk are you trying to burn?

If it's a DVD, are you SURE your drive burns DVDs? - there are lots of slightly older computers that have a CD burner/DVD Rom reader drive - it can't recognize blank DVDs or burn DVDs.

Look in Device Manager.
RIGHT click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager - open up DVD / CD-Rom drives
What model(s) is(are) listed there?
Does it/they have any yellow ! or Red circle with a white X on it beside it/them?
.......

"Have a look at the CD Writers Properties... look at the Recording tab, is the box checked next to the statement "Enable CD recording on this drive""

I have no such tab or setting in my XP SP3 in Device Manager in the Properties for my drives - I have two DVD combo drives that burn fine.
