computer won't recogize or burn cdrw's

Postby pouce on Sat Mar 27, 2004 6:47 pm

I AM RUNNING WINDOWS 98 ON A 750 MHZ COMPUTER WITH AMD CHIP WITH NERO 6.0 SOFTWARE. I HAVE AN LG ELECTRONICS 8018 CD BURNER AND HAVE AN INTERESTING PROBLEM.
MY CDRW BURNER JUST DECIDED TO QUIT BURNING CD REWRITABLES BUT HAS NO PROBLEM BURNING CD RECORDABLES,DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY. THE SAME CD-RW'S THAT WON'T BURN IN MINE WILL ERASE AND BURN IN THE OTHER COMPUTER WIN XP FINE. I HAVE FDISKED AND FORMATTED My COMPUTER A FEW TIMES TO MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO HIDDEN VIRUSES. I AM STUMPED AND WONDER IF SOMEONE ELSE MIGHT OF HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. THE COMPUTER DOESN'T SEEM TO RECOGNIZE THE CDRW'S. IN ONE FORM SOMEONE SAID THAT THE LASER FLASHES AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS FOR READING AND BURNING REWRITABLES AND REGULAR CD'S DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THAT IS TRUE,IF THIS IS TRUE COULD THIS MEAN THAT PART OF THE BURNER IS GONE

it appears that your drive is rather old, so it is possible that it is in some ways broken.

did you try updating the firmware of the drive to the latest version available from the manufacturer?

will your drive erase (full erase, quick erase) the CDRWs?
