Hi Many disks will show up with this error (Drive E: is not ready!) even though the disk is showing in the ripper app: E: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GE24NU40 (MASH_S10D1). If I reboot the computer - it will work fine. I know this is probably not a software issue, I just don't want to reboot 1500 times to back up my collections. Any help is appreciated.
