Sorry to bother you guys but I am at my wits end. I figured I would inquire here before I reinstall all software on my PC again. I have a LITE-ON LTR-48246S CD-RW Drive that can read CDs without any problems but seems to get hung up when I go to write to a CD. The write process will start but then the drive gets hung and I end up with â€œunable to write data to CDâ€ message in Windows XP Wizard. No matter what size file I try to write to the CD Drive the process time is displayed as 5 seconds â€“ even for large files. When I try to use Roxio to perform the same task, it too gets hung up in the write process. Specs to the box that I am having the problem with are listed below. I have made sure that all the settings are where they should be IMAPI Services, CD Properties, update Drivers etc. I have also repaired Windows XP, uninstalled Roxio and reinstalled. The results are the same. I know the CD Drive works because I swapped it out and tested it on another box during trouble shooting. Iâ€™m about ready to take this one and throw it through the wall.
PC: Gateway Desktop 700 Series
OS: Windows XP Pro SP1
CD Drive: LITE-ON LTR-48246S CD-RW Drive
Additional CD Burning Software: Roxio Easy CD Creator 188.8.131.52 Platinum
I apologize for placing this in wrong forum - my bad.
