Are you trying to use a new disk or is it one that already has files on it?

If the CD is blank/unused, there's nothing to read. What is it that you're trying to do with the disc?

✔ Best Answer
You cannot read a brand new CD-R because it has nothing on it. You can burn something onto it though. A CD-R cannot be formatted, burning something onto it does the equivalent and initializes it. A burn once also finalizes it and you cannot burn anything else onto it but you can burn something without finalizing so you can add more to it. I believe that to make a music CD that will play on CD players you may have to do the burn once type though.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
