CD-RW Help

I bought a batch of Memorex Ultra Speed CD-RW(24x, 700mb, 80min).

I have a LITE-ON LTR-40125S CD-R/RW

I can record normal CD-R’s easily all day long at 40x without a problem.

Once I put a CD-RW in, I cannot write.

I get the message that “The recorder does not support this type of disc!”

Previous to the actual burning, the burn speed is stuck/grey’d at 2x.

I am using Nero Express 6. I was using Nero 5, and upgrading thinking maybe it would help. Nothing changed at all, same issues both time. I also tried buying a new set of CD-RW, and the same issues are still occuring.

Thanks for the help!

Ultra speed disks need ultra speed drives. Your’s isn’t.

The Memorex US discs are also the worst RW media ever made, so it’s just as well they won’t burn in the 40125.
