I have had a Phillipd CDRW for about a year. It has worked fine. Now it refuses to burn any cd's.(buffer underrun what else is there ?) nothing has changed ..software or hardware. Am currently on win98 (Not se) using a cyrex 686 w/ 128 MB ram; Easy cd creator 4. What all have I tried ? 1) changing brands of cd's
2) Completely reinstalling windows (Clean Install)
3) checking the cables (Ide)
4) letting the machine cool down.]
5) trying to burn w/ the cover removed
When attempting to burn I will perform the test first and it completes sucessfully. but fails when it's time to write. I am creating a data cd..
using the easy cd creator software (it won't copy cd's either same problem)first I build a disk lay out of what's to be on the cd, then create an image file on disk. The only sucess that I have had is by placing a 2k text file on the layout .. in other words I was able to record a 2k file on rhe cd. Yes, I leave the Cd open. this may or may not be of any consequense but the cd direct stuff works with out a problem. Can copy files to a Rw cd.
Any Ideas ?]
