Hello there,

I do not know if my problem is a hardware issue or software issue ?

Anyway here goes,

I tried to burn a CD earlier this evening on my PC
(Something I have done many times before)

For some reason I cannot do it this time.

I will run through what I did !

As usual I right clicked on the Word document that I wanted to write onto CD.
I then clicked on “ send to”

Now usually a bunch of choices will show up, including D Drive, (which is my optical drive)

Then normally a little bubble would show up next to the system clock.
The bubble would say “ you have files waiting to be written to CD”
So normally when I go in to my D. Drive there would be a little list of the left and one of the options would be to write the file to the CD.
On clicking it a Windows wizard would open up and would take me through the rest of the process.

Now however, on right clicking the appropriate file & then clicking on “Send to”
This time the D. drive isn’t there in the list.

When I click on the “My Computer” icon and double-click on the D. drive
(My optical drive)
It comes up with a box that says:

D:\ is not accessible. Invalid access to memory location

Interestingly, the optical drive seems to be unaffected with regards to watching, reading, and copying, DVD Disk’s ?

Also, the optical drive is showing up as working correctly in device manager !

Anyway at the moment I can't burn any data or music onto CDs

Please help as I am a bit concerned.

Regards Richard Milner.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing !
