Okay, I have been a IS Manager for years and have worked in computers most of my life. This one has me pure stumped. Wondering if anyone has any thoughts here?
I have a brand new cd burner, a pioneer dvd burner about a year old, and I just bought a brand new dvd burner a NEC AD-7170A. The cd burner and pioneer had both been working fine before this problem started.
System is plenty fast for the drives. Running Windows XP with svc pack 2 and all available updates installed.
Have tried to burn with Nero 7.7 and also Roxio also newest version. Neither work. Both programs will go through a burn process and neither will successfully verify the burned info and a cd burn will not read in either of my three computers and a dvd will burn, fail verify, yet will play on my dvd player but with tons of errors.
I have reloaded this system with the bare essentials to eliminate the thought of corrupt system files or some flukey thing.
I have changed the brand of cd's and dvds twice. Im relativly sure it isnt the brand of disk as I have been using the one brand for years with no problems at all.
Every disk I have tried to burn fails. CD's or DVD's. I thought the new cd burner might be bad off the shelf. So I took that drive out. I thought maybe the pioneer might have gone bad since it is about a year old so I bought the NEC. You guessed it. Same problem.
My next thought was that I had a virus. Mcafee, PC-cillian, and Norton dont find one.
I changed the cable that the drives are connected to. I removed all the drives except the new one. None of that worked either.
Anyone have any thoughts??
Need more info just let me know. Thanks in advance for the help.
