Tom B posted a topic in Software UpdatesI have Sony Sonic Stage 4.3 software installed on this desktop PC. It has worked as expected for several years. With it I can select .mp3 files and make an .mp3 disk, or Sony ATRAC files and make an ATRAC disk. I should also be able to use Windows, without Sonic Stage, to create disks. Using Windows XP, I selected the .mp3 files I wanted to burn, right-clicked and selected 'Send to and the CD drive' with blank CD loaded. I selected "write these files to CD." I got the error message: "There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive I:. Note: A writable CD is a compact disc that can be converted to a conventional or audio CD by a CD recording drive (CD-R or CD-RW). After being recorded, the CD is capable of being used in any computer CD-ROM drive or audio CD player." I started Sony Sonic Stage. I selected the same .mp3 files and (to use Sonic Stage's term) "imported" (copied) them into Sonic Stage's list. From that I used Sonic Stage to create the list to write. I then selected the "create an mp3 CD" function (shown on the right hand side of the screen). Sonic Stage shows the same drive letter I: for the CD that Windows shows. I selected the Start writing function, and it worked. I now have an .mp3 CD that plays OK on other .mp3 players. I need to be able to use Windows to copy selected files (of any extension) to a CD on this PC. I have to wonder if the installation of Sony Sonic Stage has damaged my ability to use this Windows function. What should I do next so Windows does not give me the above quoted error message? The device used for CD writing is an LG CD/DVD writer.
