Target Disk Too Small or Unrecordable

Question

When using Disk Copier and Creator Classic, I frequently get the message "The Target Disk is either too small or not recordable" and the disk is automatically ejected from the drive.

 

If I simply re-insert the (same) disk, it will then work fine (I may have to re-insert a couple of times before it takes it).

 

Anyone else having this problem?

Check on the drive maker's website for a firmware update - it sounds as if the drive has a problem reading the disc (the disc size, type, etc are read by the firmware and reported from that back to the program)

No, But i would suggest also besides the firmware... is to clean or "blow out" the drive itself sounds like dust may be laying on the burning / reading laser lenses.

I doubt that dust would be the prime suspect here (I normally use a lens cleaning disc myself) as if it was a film of dust on the lens, all discs would fail to be read (the dust won't just vanish and reappear at random)

 

However, cleaning on a reasonably regular basis isn't a bad idea.

 

Despite what some people may think btw, the 'wet' type lens cleaning discs don't do any harm - it seems that some people equate those with the old head cleaning tapes in VCRs - a totally different setup (they could and did cause damage). They will also get rid of a dust film that is impervious to an air blast
