CD-R erratically detected
On an elderly PC I help a friend with, where he's copying a lot of his
old LPs to CD, we use burn4free (though I think the problem is not with
More often than not, when hitting the "burn" button, it says "please
insert a disc" - even if there's one in. When, by fiddling, ejecting,
closing and reopening b4f, and so on, it finally decides that there _is_
a blank disc in, it does the burn fine.
While looking, it rattles the floppy drive before it "finds" the writer
(from within b4f, that is).
It isn't the _drive_ that's not being detected - that always shows up in
explorer; it's only the fact that there's a blank disc in it that is so
Any ideas what's causing it, and what will improve it?

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!
