Yamaha CRW6416S cannot read burnt CDs
Posted on 2003-02-26
My Yamaha CRW6416S drive (a SCSI-2 CDRW drive, 6x-4x-16x) has recently not been able to read discs that it burns. It can read discs that other drives burn and can read retail CDs. The discs that it burns can be read by my other CDROM drive, a LG 52x. If I check the contents of a CD immediately after I burn it the Yamaha can read the disc fine, but as soon as i take it out of the drive and then reinsert it the disc can't be recognised. Windows Explorer will let you click on the drive letter but won't display the contents of the disc (the pane where files and folders are supposed to be displayed is just blank, it doesn't complain about a improperly formatted disc or anything). When i check the properties of the drive/disc (right click on 'CD Drive (K:)' and goto properties) it either says that the file system is RAW or 'Unknown'. I'm running Windows XP Pro SP1 with the default WinXP drivers for the drive. The drive on an Adaptec 2906 SCSI host adapter. The only other device on the chain right now is a Iomega ZIP 250, termination is ok. Any help would be greatly appriciated!
