verbatim cd-rw problem please read



I have owned my verbatim 32x12x40x cd-rw for quite some time now, around 6 months. The same nero software with it too. everything works fine until yesterday when i tried to burn a cd! when i was ready to write to the cd i could only choose from 12x or 8x write speeds! my friend advised me to re install the cd-rw from scratch. I did that and it fixed the problem. now tonight i burned a second cd and the problem popped right back up again and i can only burn in 12x or 8x, my current cd's i use are 16x max

very unusual since when i first re installed my cd-rw i could burn fine with all speeds available.


Have yon installed any software that might interfere with you CD-Drives? Anything at all?


hardware monkey
no idea. just wanted to say i just purchased the exact same drive on clearance for $20... then i got a $30 mail-in rebate. }:p

besides this current problem which might be software or cd-r media based.. it's been a good burner, right?


yup no problems except this recent one.. i just now found out recently that when i start my pc fresh, it has the right speeds, but hours after my pc is on is when i decided to burn a cd and thats also when the low burn speeds would only show. so if i wanna burn fast, gotta restart pc :\

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
