Default Burning stuff

Whenever I try to burn something to disc, whether it be music files or an ISO image, the disc automatically ejects and I get some sort of error telling me to put a disc in.

(And yes, I have tried putting a disc in after the message pops up as well)

What's going on?

Have you tried multiple disks that you're sure are blank? When you buy those big packs of 100 disks sometimes there are bad ones in there.

Yeah, I've tried at least five different discs.

have you checked to make sure your drive can write cds? not like check and see if it's a cd-rw drive, but in the drive properties.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Well, technically he hasn't specified that he's using cd's, but either way I'm guessing he has a cd and/or dvd burner, but it's broken.
If you have a dvdrw cdrw drive, try burning both cds and dvds, see if you get the error on both media types.
Get one of the same disks you tried to burn onto with your pc, and see if a different burner will accept them.
