I haven't used them to write for a while but both my Sony CRx140E CD drive and my LG DVD/Cd drive will not write Cd's. I seemingly have to keep enabling both drives manually to enable CD recording (they seem to reset to disable at random) IMAPI CD Burning is started and I am just copying and pasting in My Computer on XP.
Whenever I start to write to the Cds I just get a message saying Cannot Complete the Cd writing wizard. Have tried 3 different types of CDR & CDRW on both drives. Any ideas anyone ????
It may be a coincidence but I installed SP2 about a week ago.
I appear to have partially solved this problem. I found a reference on the net saying that XP could not support more than 1 CD Writer. I therefore have disconnected the Sony drive and left the LG dvd/CD and lo and behold I can succesfully write CD's (of all formats)
The problem is now that although the files are present on the CD the minute I try to access them via My Computer or opening them in Photoshop (they are Jpegs) the application hangs,. and the pictures will not open. Have tried this on two different makes of blank Cd with the same results.
