I have a PX-708A (firmware v1.04), and am using Windows XP and Nero InCD 18.104.22.168. I have no problems reading/writing CD-Rs or DVD+Rs, and the drive diagnostic tests fine (jumpering the two middle jumpers). Here’s the problem:
I format a CDRW (UDF) using InCD, and then copy files onto the CDRW by dragging them in Windows Explorer. Then, I eject the cd and re-insert it. When I try to read from the same cd, I have problems. When I copy the same files back to the hard drive, it takes a very long time (5 minutes when writing took 50 secs). Then, I get a dialog box stating that an internal error has occured.
I tried the same thing using MRW. Again writing goes smoothly. When I try to read the files back, Explorer will take a long time and eventually hang.
I am using Verbatim DataLifePlus Ultra Speed (16-24x) RW discs. This has happened with 3 different discs (same type)
Is my drive bad? Is my copy of InCD or Windows messed up? Has anyone else had similar problems?
