hi I'm mel and I have a problem with my cd drive. The thing is it reads cds but when I try to transfer my files onto one it says cd drive in use or please insert a blank cd. I have set the recording level low and tried two differant brands of cds. I have windows xp and I'm doing it on a cd rw drive but to be fair don't know much about pc's so any advice I could get would be great. Thank you!
