Is it possible for a CDRW media disk to become ‘totally’ unusable after a cd-burning copy session?
I used CloneCD 18.104.22.168 to create a backup of my copy-protected CDs on both a Verbatim 4-10x and a Memorex 8-10x CDRW.
I then tried to erase the disks but the software would not even mount them any longer. Either a 'No disk" message is indicated or the software just hangs up.
This has never happend before, especially with copying ordinary [non-protected disks].
For the copy process, I have been using a Plextor 12/10/32A with CloneCD 22.214.171.124 running on NT4.0 server with Service Pack 6a.
Besides CloneCD 126.96.36.199, I even tried using Nero 188.8.131.52, Adaptec Easy Creator 4.03c and Alcohol120% on a separate Windows 2000 machine to erase them but could not. All copy programs either ignore the disks or cannot mount [‘see’] them.
I really don’t care about the data, but simply wish to erase and reuse these CDRW disks.
Has anyone else had this very strange problem? I also searched Google but could not find anyone else experiencing this weird phenomenon.
Thanks in advance.
