I just bought the Samsung CDRW/DVDROM COMBO drive
(CDR32x CDRW10x CDROM40x DVDROM12x).
I can play my DVDs, burn my CDRs just fine. But when i tried to burn CDRWs, the drive won't be able to detect the disk! Samsung bundled the drive with 1 CDR and 1 CDRW(4x-10x). The CDR disk works fine but it's not able to detect the CDRW disk.
At first I thought it would probably be the drive's problem, then i tried inserting another CDRW disk(Imation CDRW 1x-4x compatible) and my drive seems to be able to detect that! The InCD software automatically detects that and prompts me to do a format on the disk. I did the formatting and later on, everything works just fine (copying of files and deleting was a breeze!).
Assuming that the problem may rest on the CDRW which was bundled with the drive, I bought another CDRW today, a Duraplus CDRW 1x-4x. After I had inserted the disk, nothing happens! (The exact same scenario as the Samsung CDRW disk which was bundled with the drive)
I launched InCD myself (and later on, Nero as well) but still its not able to detect the disk in the drive. I'd tried checking the manual on the troubleshooting section but nothing was mentioned there about the problem i'm facing. I've gone to Samsung's support site and have a look at their FAQs and Tech Support but still nothing was mentioned about this.
Does anyone knows what may be the problem and how can i resolve it? Thanks!
