Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me fix this problem I’m having.
I’m currently using Memorex 52X, 700 MB, CD-Rs to burn picture files (Mostly JPGS)
The burner I am using came standard with my laptop, it is a Toshiba SD-R9012. I have been burning the disks using 2X speed (I tried with Max, and it couldn’t read it in the end so I worked with 2X)
My Laptop is a IBM Thinkpad T41 with a 1.60GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.
The problem I am having is that I cannot view the files burnt onto my CD-R. When I put the CD-R in, nothing happens at all. If I go from My Computer > D:\ it acts as if there were a blank disk in.
So far, I have burned four disks. One has been using Max speed and I haven’t been able to view any files using it. Three having been using 2X speed. One of them I am able to read half of the time (Sometimes when I put it in, it shows up but other times, the drive acts as if there was nothing in it) and two of them can’t be read at all.
Also, the disks aren’t full, they each have around 400-500 MB of data on them, again, mostly in the form of JPGs.
I’ve heard from somewhere that Memorex CD-Rs are unreliable. Is this true? If it is, what brands can I use next time? If not, can someone please help me find a solution to my problem?
Oh right, I forgot to mention, these CD-Rs can be read on my friend’s desktop and laptop. I also don’t have any other computers at my house, sorry =/
