CD-R writing errors
Posted on 2002-04-13
I seem to have some problem with my Philips x8x4 CD-RW. It's 9 months old, and still under warranty, so I'd like to know if you think this is a hardware problem, and sending it to be fixed will solve it.
The last two recordings I made ended with EZ CD Creator 4 saying that the recording succeeded. The CD directory structure looks okay, but some of the files are unreadable on my DVD drive (Toshiba x6). I used the same CDs for recording that I used countless times before (tried 2 different brands). Actually had quite a bit of trouble getting the first to record, and it eventually recorded at x4. The second one recorded at x8 without a problem, but still resulted in errors.
What can cause this? A misaligned head? Or can this be some software problem because of other things that are running? To make it simple, I created a disc image and recorded from that, so it shouldn't be a problem reading the files.
What do you think?
