I think this is a standard computing term and should not be confusing for native English speakers. There may be some risk of confusion for non-native speakers. > Think about these strings: > > > #.

In that case you could use more specific terms here, e.g. "The optical disc drive contains a disc which cannot be used for installation." Otherwise a suitable new text could be something like "The detected drive does not contain a usable installation disk".
