Hi,

I have tried to send some data on CD but for some reason it doesn’t work.

All steps are as usual: data send to CD, than press for “write to CD”, everything starts when I place the CD in the CD-RW drive, and after a minute or so (drive no flushes the light at all) I have the message that its not possible to write the CD.

On this comp im writing for years, so I am not quite sure why problem now. For the info, my XP is up to date, all utilities are up to date (and with any malware) and there is no any problem with hardware that im aware of.

Any suggestions? Thank you for the help.

cd-writers do die...the laser simply burns itself out

sometimes, you get a bad batch of CDs---try a different brand...

Hi Gerryf,

I thought so. Well it seems that I have either switch the CD-RW beetwin the comp’s, or I have to buy new one. ?^$@?>^&* - but that’s the life.

Thank you.

Regards,

Den

I think I would slide another cd-rw in the bad pc as a test, to make certain it is not a deep, underlying windows issue first.

Concurrently, try a new batch of CDs

I have bought a 50 pack cdr and had 40 of them not work in the past.

Is there any recourse for replacement when there are so many "bad" cd's and/or floppies? Sorry to butt in.
