Well, I just spend the last several hours running every diagnostic I could think of. It worked, though I have no idea which particular one made it work. I ran various Norton System Works programs, I defragged the harddrive, ran a ton of spyware and virus checkers, and then did clean sweep to make some more room on the harddrive. Just burned a CD, not a coaster, for the first time in over a week, and GOD DOES THAT MAKE ME HAPPY!


#4

More confused then ever! After getting 1 CD to finally burn, I’m back at square one, and just got the same damn error report. What the hell!? Your thoughts, please.


#5

i installed clone cd to try another burning program and got this error—

This tells you that the media that you’re using is either bad in general or is no good for your drive. Please see this thread on rpc1.org

dhco14…
i apologize,you are right,i guess the rest of that cd pack is bad,i tried a cdrw in the drive and it burned fine,i have another question though,why wouldnt the dvdrw/cdrw drive see these as bad,i backed up a cd that was gettin scratched,and the first song or 2 played fine but then it started cutting out real bad and soundind staticy,thats when i realized you were probably right,anyway thanks for helpin
