cdrw wont burn cds

  SarahC 15:48 06 Jan 2005

got a new cdrw about 5 months ago an was working fine then suddenly it stopped burning disks it will read software disks fine so thought maybe it was broken so went out and bought a brand new one but still having the same trouble, when using nero it will only produce an image and using windows wizard it says that disk can no longer be used

please help :(

Hi Sarah.

Try a different (reputable) brand of disk (see if you can 'borrow' an odd one from a friend first to check compatability).

Best of luck.

tried a couple of different brand disks used phillips and datawrite but none seem to work could it be a problem with ide cable?

Have you tried uninstalling nero? Re install and see if it solves the problem.Also see if your ide controllers are ok.There in device manager,they should be both dma(in the properties) if not uninstall and on re boot windows automatically installs the again hope this helps
