Data Disks seen as "blank disk" ?


mu5s4ic

Question

I have a Pavillion/Intell III, LG CD-RW CED 8080B and I am running

XP professional. Recently I installed Roxio Easy CD&DVD burning.

THE PROBLEM: When I load any CDs previously recorded (DATA, MP3,

and others with info), the drive shows them as "blank CD" ???

...but I can read all of these on my laptop (w/XP).

Does anyone have an idea what is happening ???

 

-regards

What version of Roxio software do you have?

But, even if I "write the disks using ROXIO", the mediaCD still appears as

"blank CD" when I try to read it back.

Do you think the CD drive itself is old and is not working properly with XP now?

 

Can you read anything on that drive? Commercially pressed discs? Anything?

 

If not, the drive is very unwell.

first, thanks for your reply---

The CDs are Maxells 700 mb. They were burned with some ?Easy CD Creator?

software that came with my WinME (before I upgraded to XP) on this computer.

 

But, even if I "write the disks using ROXIO", the mediaCD still appears as

"blank CD" when I try to read it back.

Do you think the CD drive itself is old and is not working properly with XP now?

 

Much appreciated-

Joe

Are they R or RW media?

 

IF RW what is the speed?

 

Is there any chance you wrote them using Drag to Disc or DirectCD? (packet writers)

 

If you cannot tell us more info on HOW you wrote them, we cannot help – no crystal balls around my desk…

 

Discs are read the Operating System. Discs written by Classic are usually written using CDFS.

 

CDFS is timeless and discs written with that are readable in any PC from Win3.x to Vista!
