My 12 month old Evesham notebook has a CD-RW/CD-ROM combo drive [ATAPI]. Until recently it worked perfectly with no "coasters" however whilst copying a CD, using my usual brand of blank CDs which 24x speed but with a backward compatibility down to 1x, an error message came up saying the write speed was too slow. The settings were set at the maximum of 8x. This is the CD-RW's max speed. I'm using win 98 SE OS and 'B'recorder Gold burning software. Any suggestions/advice please.
