    Hi, newguy1

    I had that problem. My fix was to wait until the CD drive made some sounds soon after it started up. Try waiting a little after you insert the disk tray.

    Good luck!

    Hello newguy1,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    We are really sorry for the inconveniences.

    Please uncheck the "Enable Cd recording on this drive" box in the "Recording" tab (to get to this tab please right click on the CD-drive in "My computer" and choose "Properties").

    Also please try the following workaround:

    - Eject any disc from the burner prior to starting the program;
    - Proceed until the program asks for a disc;
    - Insert a disc and then click the OK button to close the tray automatically.

    If nothing helps please send the link to this thread to support@acronis.com. We will do our best in order to help you.

    Thank you.
