Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I have two Dell Optiplex Gx280's with the CRN-8245Bs installed. Both are displaying the same problem. I am using the same cd media to burn disks via Iomega Hotburn software. Some of the disks are working fine and others are not working in the drive. The cd-rom is cannot read anything on the cd. I can take the cd to a completely different machine and it is read fine. Any suggestions? Thanks.... I have a 2500 presario laptop. My DVD/CD-ROM will read a few disks but will not read most, even CD's that I created on this drive. Am able to play some commercial DVD's and Audio CD's. Have tried many new cds and no luck, even brand new cd's. When rt clicking on properties I get the reading "0 free space" and " and "0 used space" and the cd does not spin. Thanks for any help
Hi, if the PC's are older than 3 years or the cdrom drives are near it's end of life, it will make problems to read some CDR's. If you recorded the CD's you are trying to read, try recording at less than 4X speed.
Sometimes, even "original" or "silver" CD's will make problems because they are not recorded correctly at the factory.
If the problem is with a CDRW drive, it applies the same theory, the recording laser is damaged or used up. It will not record a legible CD or DVD even if the software says that the record operation ended successfully.
