you could check if the ASPI layer is properly installed in your system, reinstall ForceASPI. Have you tried updating your drive firmware?

The Firmware's Been Updated Before I posted. and I just installed ForceASPI. Still No Luck. I just tried to erase an already full RW disc, it worked. and it picked up the blank one. i bought this 100 pack of Memorex CD's and im starting to Think their Faulty, But The First 10 or so worked. Is their a way to check if the disc is faulty?

*cough* pentium 2....400mhz....HELL how could you burn with this machine. Most new cd burners doesn't get any problem when writing cds. Memorex are one of the best cd brands in the whole world. So they're not faulty or smth. It's your machine. It's slow -_-

Burners confuse me, I have an old Phillips burner... I can make a CD with it and it'll work great on computers at work and school and stuff. But if I try to run the CD on the phillips drive i used to make the cd it won't work. :hdbash:

Did the first 10 CDR or RW's successfully burn before or after XP sp2, because if it is after, then it's most likely XP's sp2. Try upgrading to the latest Aspi drivers and snuff out the one that Microsoft has on XP. Also Upgrade to a New Version of Nero or Something, and burn the CD's at the lowest rate to avoid burnout to cpu load overdose. I personally do not think there is anything wrong with your CD burner even after the firmware upgrade. By the way, who mentioned it was a lemon, what model and year and make is this drive. To "Whoever" it's not the CD burner it's the software used to burn the CD that affects which machines read burned cd's. Also if it is a CDRW alot of older CD players do read these.

I can burn CD's with my DOS PC and it's only using a Pentium 1 with 24 MB RAM :p. Burns at 2x are flawless while burning at 4x causes some errors (but the CD appears to still be usable). A P2 400 is perfectly capable of burning CD's :). I believe I was able to hit 24-32x with my old K6-2 500.

I guess every burner has some brand of discs that it doesn't like. My Lite-On burner (LTR-52246S) doesn't seem to like burning to the Maxell CD-R's I got or to my brother's TDK discs, although it loved the Sony discs I had previously. It spins up and down repeatedly for about 30-60 seconds before it starts burning but the CD's haven't come out screwed up. I tried flashing the firmware with the latest revision and that seemed to shorten the spin up/down time a bit so maybe you should try doing that.
