Have 2 Philips PCRW4816 burners in 2 identical computers both have the same problem.
Have installed XP pro and servicepack 1. The drive can read cd’s and if it burns all the cd’s are unreadable. The burn speed low or high does not matter. I use nero 188.8.131.52 last version or clone cd4 both have the same problems. The same happens before and after SP1 was installed.
Have allready disable the build in xp burn software through services, but this does not help.
When I install the philips in my Windows 2000 pc, it works perfect no problem. When I install a liteon 16 speed burner in the XP computer it also works.
So my clue is the Phlips and XP doe not work together for some reason.
Have looked at the Philips website but no clue where to get tech help from them. Maybe someone here can help.
