Hello there

Please help, see what you make of this, just bought a decent notebook, Mesh pegasus 2200 with DVD/CD-RW combo thing, i can burn (using latest Nero) music, data, etc onto CD-Rs and they're fine, the problem is CD-RW discs, they seem to burn fine but when i come to read them again after they're done, the drive can't recognise them and the pc has crashed a couple of times, is the problem either the CD-RW discs themselves?
or is the Combo drive just not very good and therefore can't read RWs or could there be a more serious prob
any ideas?

CD-RWs are the spawn of the devil.

As CDRs are so cheap, don't even bother with the other kind.

I wouldn't use a CDRW even as a bird scarer.
