Thanks Hemispasm for your research and excellent reply. Very much appreciated.
Sorry to say, still no luck. Here's where I'm at so far.....
Unticked Eject Media in CCD settings.
Updated driver for the burner from Microsoft.
Updated firmware from Yamaha site.
The burner was set to write SOA.
Tried a burn after a reboot with TDK 80 min disk, and received the same error message but still a successful burn with a cdrw.
Flashed the BIOS with an Intel update but still got the same error?
I think I've struck out this time, but not totally as I can still write to cdrw
From time to time I'll keep checking Clone with different media and maybe find a particular cdr it's compatable with.
My writing capabilities with this writer are very limited anyhow and cdrwin still works great for me....
Thanks for everything mate, and i think i'll stay around as this is a very helpful forum....who knows, maybe I'll be able to help someone
