I have a bunch of old (not more than 4 months) blank cdr .
I tried writing on them - but they wont write at rated speed of 32x - the motor inside the drive keeps on spining but nothing happends.
I dropped the speed to 24, 16, 8 but still no success.
Finally the drive was able to write at 4x.
I tried a different brand that i had bought along with it - they wont write anything above 8X.
I tried on a cdr that was almost a year old !!! it did write - but when i tried to read the contents - drive was not able to read from it…
can anyone explain why this is happening - chemical change…
