Ive tried Nero burning, alcohol and windows. no error messages at all. i tried it on the neighbours computer and it says corrupt files cannot read. it takes the right amount of time to burn about 6 mins at 12 speed and says disc finished.
sorry... i tried reading the cds ive burned. ive burned 5 now with different data at different speed for writing and they al show up on the neighbors drive as corrupt. they show up blank onmy cdr drive but on the other drive they show as having the right amount of data just says its corrupt.
another thing ive noticed now is when i load any cd it shows on my computer as empty when i select properties but when i click on it the data is there but only on pre recorded discs bot not on cdr or cdrwx
I have a Samsung that i moved to my second computer because of problems like that. so there are now two CDRW in the comp the older one a Yamaha 16x4x4 still work OK. I fitted a Optorite 52x24x52 in place of the Samsung in number one computer it's miles better cost about £25 from Ebuyer with Nero 5.5
Nero burning, alcohol and windows? If you have More than one burning program installed it will sometimes cause corruption.Nero 188.8.131.52 onwards works well with WinXp Home & Prof versions.Suggest you remove all surplus burning software & load only one then check your Iso settings & retry burning a few files..
meant to say i thought it was the software so i used windows burner then loaded nero6 then uninstalled nero and tried alchohol. is having to reinstall xp to blame or coincidence my xp disc doesnt have drivers specically for this drive so loaded generic cd driver but i couldnt find a driver on xp disc for cdr+w drives
