D:\ Is not accessible, incorrect function

Hi, I keep trying to find an answer but i can't seem to find one....

I have an windows xp service pack 3. I never had a problem with burning CDs until now. I usually just put in an empty CD R and open up it up under D: and I would usually just drag my mp3s there and click on "burn onto CD" that's on the panel to the left. Now this time when I put in a brand new cd into the disk drive, it says D:\ is not accessible, incorrect function. So i put in a regular CD that has music to see if it's working and yes the music shows up in the CD and it plays. I then put in another blank new cd and it still says incorrect function. I have no idea what's going with it? I even tried right clicking it and look at properties, and all i see is General, AutoPlay, and Hardware. Please help!

Is it CD or DVD.
If it's DVD, your might need to use DVD+R or DVD-R, depending on your DVD burner.
The current DVD burner mostly supports both, +R and -R.
So if your burner is an old one or a very cheap one, your might have to check for that.

Btw: How did you try to open up the drive with the empty CD in it?
Are you using a burning software for it, or simply doubleclick on the drive?
A simply doubleclick on that drive will just give you an error message, because there is no TOC (table of contents) on the empty CD.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!
