Failed To Prepare When Ejecting

Question

I've been having trouble with burning jpeg pics to CD discs. It appears that the pics are on the disc but when I take the disc out and then but it back in it will show as a blank disc. I tried it in another computer and it showed blank but then I put it back in the original computer and the pics are on the disc!? I think it has to do with closing the disc...when I tried to close the disk (to use in a non drag-to-disc computer) it gives me this error..."Failed to prepare media for CD-ROM or DVD-ROM compabilitly. Any suggestions? Thanks.

What Operating System do you have?

 

What Version of which Suite are you running? (i.e., Version 7.1.68.0 of RecordNow)

 

Which application within the suite are you using?

 

How are you ejecting the disc - using the mouse or keyboard commands and waiting until it gets around to it, or using the eject button of the burner drive?

KJKMOM,

 

You should not be using Drag-to-Disc [formatting your CDs and dragging JPGs onto them] if you want to avoid compatability problems like this between your system using D2D and another system which isn't using it. Formatting the disc also gobbles up an extra 160 MB or so of the 650 or 700 you have available on the CD.

 

Instead, I would suggest you go to the Data Guide and then use either 'Data Disc' or Creator Classic to burn your JPGs to disc.

Both the simple Sonic Data Disc program and the more versatile Creator Classic use blank [unformatted] discs to make standard CD-ROM discs which can be read in any PC machine. This avoids problems with reading them later after you've changed software, or on different machines.

 

If you would like more information on these things, the Easy Media Creator 9 manual will be helpful since this 'Easy CD and DVD Burning' software is a cut-down subset of Easy Media Creator 9. The manual's available for free download here.

 

 

Regards,

Brendon
