I have just purchased a Yamaha 4260 CD read/write. As it the weekend here and I have a presentation on Monday I am looking for a quick fix. The problem is that on the ONLY read/write CD - a Yamaha CRWM74 R that came with the machine - that I have and it will not work properly. That is it will write,erase and test OK, but if I tried to read it I get an error of 'parameter incorrect'. This both on the Yahama and on my Sony CD on the PC.

I can read/write CD-R's OK but not the rewriteable.

Any Ideas?

The standard for cd rw is shaky and not all cdrom drives can read multi-read cdrom's Only the newest drives are multi read compatible.  This may explain the problems you are having.  Not much help in your case except for the info.

Did you format your new CD-RW?  It needs it.
