OK what happened last night to change it? Windows update? Other?.

 

Did you try to burn using Music Disc Creator?

 

Do you have any cheap RW media around to try. It is just possible that you did get a bad disc or two in a package. It does happen to the best products. What are you trying to burn to the disc -- something different from what you usually do? What type of audio files? What are the properties of the files? Right click on the file and select properties, then summary/advanced

If you go to Roxio Home -> Tools -> Disc Information, does your CD-R show up in Inserted Disc?

Ivan, The track details are there but when I play some of the CDs which have the same details I can get no sound. Playing through my HiFi and Windows Media I get no sound. I can only think that the file became corrupted as when I was creating a 2nd CD in Sound Editor halfway through the recording process stopped an there was a message to the effect thaat there was a write error on the disc. Your tip about Disc Info was great. I have deleted the offending file, an early stereo broadcast from 1954, and will try some other files - when my blood pressure is down. Thanks for help Barry

I have noticed this also - or something similar. If I am preparing to burn an audio CD, and I already have the blank CDR in the drive, EMC8 - the Music Creator - asks me to insert a blank disk. I usually end up removing the CD and then placing it back in the burner when EMC8 asks for it. Then it works.

 

However if I wait to insert the disc till after Roxio tells me to insert the disk, it picks it up right away.

 

It's as if the program doesn't know to look at the CD if it is already in the burning drive when you try to burn. Wasn't always like this. It may be that the 8.05 update caused this, but I cannot remember exactly when it started.

 

... Do you have any cheap RW media around to try. It is just possible that you did get a bad disc or two in a package. It does happen to the best products....

 

It certainly can be bad media. I'm presently looking at a cake stack of 100 Ritek 8X DVD's with about 90 left on the stack. All 10 I have burned thus far will work only on a PC - but not, however on any stand-alone DVD player that I have tried.

 

And I have made literally hundreds of burns using the same type of Ritek media. Ritek had been near perfect for me until this stack. But I tried burns using several different burning applications and the result has been the same. Hone digital video authored DVD's amd movie DVD backups.

 

Doesn't mean that Ritek is bad media; just means that this batch was bad.

 

So I am using these disks only for data files now, as I would only use them on the PC.

 

Happens to the best of 'em!
