I'm having problems with the CD burner QSI SBW-241, which is a CDRW/DVD combo drive in my laptop.
For a long time I've been able to burn CDs without any problem and recently I'm having trouble with that. I haven't been burning much and downloaded Knoppix (a bootable CD that runs a Linux distribution). However, when I tried to boot from the CD I had read errors.
I tried burning an ordinary data CD with Nero (version 188.8.131.52) and do a data check afterwards (using Nero), receiving read errors.
When trying to read a burnt CD (with the QSI burner) in Windows, I get CRC errors. If I try to read the CD in other CD drives I get the same errors. I don't seem to have problems reading discs though.
Thus basically, I don't seem to be able to burn discs.
I'm using Lifetec Premium Silver 80 minutes CD's for burning. These have always worked without a problem so I don't expect the media to be a problem.
Eager to receiving your response,
