CD writing suddenly has errors

vbimport

#1

Greetings, gurus! I last wrote a CD on 18 March 08, successfully. But now 21 June 08, my CD writing is no longer successful.

My PC has Asrock P4S61 m/b, Celeron 2.4GHz, RAM 768MB, HDD 13.9GB with >9GB free space, Windows 2000 SP4 with (since 20 March 08) “UPDATE ROLLUP 1 FOR WINDOWS 2000 SP4”, Nero Burning ROM v6.3.0.2.

On 21 June, I started a new multisession CD, a compilation of numerous files and (sub)directories, total about 490MB. After simulation and burning, verification failed. Windows Explorer read the CD without protest, but I found some subdirectories empty; some files had incorrect characters in them or were otherwise garbled.

I include the Nero log below. I will be grateful if anyone can comment. Eg, does this show that the fault lies within the burner SAMSUNG CD-R/RW? And/or suggest remedy or remedies?

This drive seems still to read CD’s correctly.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Princo is not the best media, so I’m not surprised by the verification errors.

Have you tried burning those Princo discs at a slightly slower speed, such as maybe 16x?

If that doesn’t help, then I’d heartily suggest better media - Sony or Taiyo Yuden, the latter you can find easily online :slight_smile:

A nero update may help also :wink:

Thanks, Arachne. Unfortunately I have to abandon trying to get this writer going; suspect I’ve damaged electronic innards while attempting improvement: There was a ticking while the drive was reading CD’s, eg Microsoft Encarta. The laser carriage was “sticky” in the inner part of it’s travel. I tried to distribute grease more evenly; after that the carriage moved more easily. But after re-assembly, drive won’t read that CD any more; I get msg:

D:\ is not accessible.
The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.
