Hell-o all ! I have a good ol’ yamaha scsi (internal) crw4416s burner for 4 years now. Like 2-3 months ago I started having problem with it : it could’nt burn on anything else than CDRW disk or black surface disks (like the black Memorex cdrs).
So since then I’ve always used black & cdrw disks and all was fine, the copies where good, no problem at all reading them on other drives.
But since this week it seem that I cannot write and even not read anything with the burner, it seem totaly dead ! When I burn something, it says 100% complete, no problems but when I check the disk, it is empty or it is totaly corrupted.
Is this a laser problem? Is it possible to clean it or should I start checking for a new burner now ? arrr !
i am runing it on Windows XP, pentium 3 450, 512m ram, on adaptec scsi ultra2wide card (aha-2940U2W)
thanx for your help all !
