Sometimes it happens that when you insert a recorded data DVD or CD into your CD or DVD reader but rather then displaying the data it displays the disc as blank.
Note: It’s not your CD or DVD reader fault at all when it reports the recorded media as blank.
This problem may occur when you use certain third-party Image Mastering API (IMAPI) CD-burning software to record data to a recordable CD or DVD. Lets see how this trouble can be fixed.
The problem mainly occurs because the IMAPI CD-burning software which you use for writing CD or DVD changes the sub-header bits on the disc to a format that Microsoft Windows XP cannot read correctly.
But don’t worry as you can easily fix the issue by installing the latest service pack provided by Microsoft, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Windows XP by clicking here.
