I've got exactly the same problem. Tried updating the firmware, changing writing software no joy.
The other day I wrote a CD with Audio OK Great.
Next day i tried to write a CD of Data and it tried but said Error unable to fix the image on the disk (or something like that)
Now it won't recognise any CDR or CDRW blank or written (even with this burner !!)
It does play pre-reccorded Disks though.
It Has no problem at all with DVD's !
I use Verbatim disks and they worked fine for six months or so....till now!
I've got TDK CDRW's and it just keeps flashing away for ages.... no result.
If i leave a disk in the drive and restart the PC it won't get past the IDE check. Therefore i'm supposing that its not software ??
The only thing i changed between writing the music and it not working was installing Nero Vision Express and the latest Windows Update. I've uninstalled all Nero stuff and even tried restoring Windows to a previously good date... Still no joy. I've got a french version of windows on partition, same thing.
Anybody out there with the answer? Any other tests we can do ?
LONE WOLF...Did you get anywhere with Samsung ?
I'd be real happy to know if you fixed it !!!
Cheers guys... Gigaboy :confused:
