SONY CRX160E CD writer

I cannot read files that I burn on this CD writer (SONY CRX160E) from my CD ROM drive.
Everytime I try to read the newly burn CDR or CDRW i receive a message of "incorrect parameter". My CD ROM Drive is 50x(multi-read also).
What's wrong please help!!!.

sorry jeboy (got disconnected for a while there).
good point Wakeup.
jeboy have you tried different brands of CDR & CDRW discs. maybe there's a compatibility issue here.
presumably the CDrom drive reads "normal" CDs OK?

troubleshooting and updates below
also see if your drive is supported

what software are you using to burn with?
error usually means copy protection on original disc.
what type of software are you copying?

Even if I copied a simple file or data, it won't open.

jeboy,

Are you closing the Track/Session/Disk?  If you do not close the session some CDRom drives will not read it.  Generally Burners will read it.  Does your burner read it after it has been burned?

Invalid Parameter for API Functions (200)
Error: Invalid parameter for an API function.

Analysis: It could be the result of a corrupted ASPI  layer or other software problem.

Solution: Re-Install the ASPI layer and try again. Otherwise, download the latest update to your CD-Maker 2000 program. Contact NTI Technical Support to report this problem should it continue to occur.

updates are included at the first site I posted.

Or scrap that junky software are use Nero (www.nero.com) For general purpose use, its a heck of a lot better than any thing else (esp. Roxio/Adaptec EZCD Corruptor).

I had a problem similar to this once with my roommate's burner, required a firmware update for the CDRW drive (couldn't read CD-Rs recorded on his burner on Toshiba CD-ROM drives, which was exactly what I had).


However, I don't see any firmware updates on Sony's site for your drive...probably a software problem.

I tried using a different CD burning software(Roxio Eazy CD Creator 5 Platinum) and the result is the same. I do finalize my CD. Actually the exact error is Parameter Incorrect from a Windows NT workstation and if I tried to read it on a Windows 98 SE OS the error is "device not ready".

Any other ideals...

Kyle SchroederConnect With a Mentor Endpoint EngineerCommented:
Are you actually using the Easy CD Creator or are you using DirectCD (where you drag and drop directly to the drive from Windows Explorer?)

It may be that you have a faulty burner that needs to be replaced.

Have you installed the patch for Sony CD Maker Pro?  The english version is:

Other languages available from the page that WiZaRd linked to above.

Try updating your ASPI drivers:

So you're recording under Windows NT 4.0 Workstation?  Do you have any anti-virus software running?  Try disabling it while recording...

There is no "Split points" link above the collaboration box.

Kyle SchroederEndpoint EngineerCommented:
Uhm, yes there is....It says "Collaboration" in yellow on dark gray background,  then the next line is "Split Points" , then "Increase Points", etc...

If you're not seeing it....are you going to www.experts-exchange.com, and what browser are you using (IE, Netscape, etc)??

jeboy061200Author Commented:
I only see "Increase Points:.....   (Available Points:..) and on the next line "Post a Comment:" then the blank space provided for the comment. I'm using IE. Maybe because its an old question?

WakeupSpecialist 1Commented:
Ohhhh I know what the problem is....I think that the split points wont come up because your question is only worth 20 points.....

Kyle SchroederEndpoint EngineerCommented:
OH yeah, you're right Wakeup...I forgot about that.

jeboy: Just glad to help.  You can leave me out of the points allocation, or if you want to increase points, do that and split between whoever you want.
