This is a very serious issue.
i have the ASUS CRW-5232AS cd-rewriter and ASUS DRW-1608P2 dvd-rewriter to exhibit full control over my digital world.
Since the last 2 yrs my cd-rw drive was working great. I could easily burn
cd-rw discs, but offlate i have been experiencing some serious techie failures in erasing really high quality cd-rw discs. The brands that i use are mainly MOSER BAER, which is the most expensive and premium brand in INDIA.
Never had any problems before but now its started to shake me …
How i get the error…
i buy a new cd-rw disc MOSER BAER 10X
insert it into my cd-rw drive
I run NERO 126.96.36.199 Ultra edition and use NERO EXPRESS to burn the disc
conduct tests to check whether it reads in my other svs-rw
I come upon some new data and feel like storing it on the MOSER BAER
Use NERO EXPRESS to burn it, then i get non-empty warning prompt,
then I select to emty the disc and burn.
FAILURES start to happen
Actually, this drive has 2 LED’s - RED for burning or erasing and GREEN for
Both the lights begin to light-up and this goes on for about 20 min.
The RED LED blinks damn fast (normally it would blink with a
half-a-second time interval indicating a
proper burn process)
The GREEN LED is stagnant and is ON. (normally, during the burn process,
this LED goes OFF.)
Firstly, the RED LED should be blinking slowly…but no…it has to catch a
train to the moon!. And the GREEN LED, instead of going off during the
burning process…is so day-dreaming that it forgets to go OFF…
…WOW! man i am having some disco lighting here…let’s dance everyone!
I have tried several s/w such as NERO itself, NERO InCD 5, DeepBurner PRO, GEAR DVD PRO, ImgBurn, Clone CD, Ashampoo Burning Studio …all latest versions…I have also tried the FULL & QUICK erase / format options of these s/w…but no luck …the 2 LED’s just behave the way i explained above.
Even tried to re-flash my cd-rw drive via ASUStek’s flash bios file from their site. Nothing seems to work …and i still cannot erase my CD-RW disc.
- I can successfully, erase my cd-rw disc in another PC and my ASUS dvd-
rw drive, too, using any of the above listed s/w.
- But then cannot write data into it anymore after inserting it into my cd-rw
3…But the new CD-RWdisc was successfully burnt on the first attempt.
Can someone help me out here…I don’t think its any fault with my cd-rw drive …since ASUS has so sophisticatedly manufactured it…
I also tried to open the drive, as i am a h/w specialist, for laser cleaning purposes…there was absolutely NO dirt or dust on the lens…
The CD-RW disc (after being erased by the dvd-rw drive) is read by the
cd-rw drive…but gives this error -> “G:\ is not accessable. Incorrect Function”, when double clicked. Normally, the blank CD folder should open, when a blank CD-R/ RW disc is inserted in WinXP…which is not happening.
NOTE: i can erase and write data into this cd-rw disc only from my dvd-rw drive or any other PC’s CD/DVD RW drives…but not from my cd-rw drive.
If i write some data into it from the dvd-rw drive into this isc, it is perfectly read from the cd-rw drive.
I am concluding that i cannot erase the CD-RW disc and cannot write data into it after the first burn process on this cd-rw drive.
What can be the issue…???
