No, no. It is not blank. I use it for archive. So it's got plenty staff on it, which I can read and copy to my HD without any problem. It is UDF formatted. I have not had any problems before, but after this irrelevant crash, you know, it is impossible to write on any of two my CDRW disks. And what is the most peculiar thing, InCD does not recognise my drive as a writing one. Something went wrong after the crash either with InCD (but I uninstalled it and installed again) or my CDR drive software (but it is ok, I checked). It drives me crazy...
