Hi,

I tried copying files onto a CD using a software tool when I got this error message (see below).

I tried using new CDs even using a different brand and still got the same error. I might have missed something. 

Can anyone give advice on what to do next?

Please help and thanks in advance.

There was a problem writing to the disk.

You can try again by clicking the retry button. You will need another blank disk ready.

The media that you may have been using may not have been a writeable/rewriteable media. This would prevent the optical drive from writing on to the disk. It’s also possible that the media you were using already had data written on it and doesn’t have any free space any more.

It’s also possible that you were using media that’s defective/bad that’s why you can’t have any data written. It’s also likely that you’re optical drive may only have reading capabilities and no writing capabilities. If this is the case, you may need to get a drive that has writing/rewriting capabilities to be able to write to CD/DVD media.

Confirm first that your CD-R or CD-RW is listed in the hardware compatibility list. Then check the device manager to see whether the device is missing. Click Start > Run > sysm.cpl > OK.
 
Click the Hardware tab > Device Manager. If you see that your device is missing, contact your manufacture and find out how to install the latest driver for the device.
 
If the device manager is present, check it to see whether there is an issue with the driver. If there is, just uninstall and reinstall it by click Start > Run > sysdm.cpl > OK. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager. Click the drive that uses the driver that you want to remove. On the Action menu, click Uninstall. When prompted to confirm the removal, click OK.
 
On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.
