    So my computer went completely gay on me. It wont let me burn cd's anymore, every time I try to burn a cd it tells me to insert a blank cd, which is weird because I went through all 50 of the blank cd-r's that I bought and apparently none of them are 'blank'. Hell it doesn't even like recognize that theres a disc in there. I have no problem loading game disc or anything to play games. But it wont recognize blank cd-r's I dont know how to fix it, any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
