Cd-rw drive problem

vbimport

#1

Hi i’m new to the forum but not new to cd burners.

I have the lovely CD-RW drive with the Model Number: BCE 833IE
and the problem i have is probably my fault for being a dumb****.
While it was burning an iso of an audio cd i have recently ripped, my computer froze up, so i decided to shut it off by having no other option, and now my burner won’t burn, it’ll read cd’s and rip 'em fine but it won’t burn anything, lemme fish out the error message…

that was the latest.

i know this is a dumb question but is there any way to flash the rom inside this particular cd-rw, i know its possible with my dvd rw drive butv that things out of commission for good.

an help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried removing it in Device Manager, and then rebooting and letting windows redetect the drive to see if that changes anything?


#3

yep, but to no avail.
and i know its not the software, i’ve used nero and Alcohol 120%, and a crappy cd audio burner program i found on download.com, all with the same error, and even bought new cd-r’s and rw’s, both do the same error

i dont know if this helps but alcohol calls my rw drive the IDE8432


#4

heres the nero error log for just data recording, uploaded on my website

im guessing that nobody even knows how to fix it.

The original model # you quoted is a BTC drive. The IDE8432 is a rebadging of the BTC.

This drive is quite old & I’ve not been able to find any firmware. There’s nothing on the BTC website for it or any of the other sites I know of.

You could post into the firmware forum & request if anyone has either of these models & can extract the firmware but honestly I think it’s a write-off.
