If you have verified the problem exists on more than 1 cd, It sounds like the DVD drive needs to be replaced.

I would start by going into my computer, right click on your burner, select properties then the recording tab and uncheck the box "enable CD recording on this device". Windows burning software causes havoc with other recording programs.

My tom tom displays a red cros through memory card whe switching it on.I have tried reseting it and inserted card into pc but even pc wont read it.The pc shows there are used space on card but wont let me...


The card may have become corrupted or has failed. You can try to recover it so you can copy off the files but that isn't always succsessfull. Go to my computer. Find the card right click then click on properties and then the tools tab and then click on error checking.

time to get a new sd card even if you can restore and read the original. Once they act up they can die again and permanently at any time.

Only reads some disks.


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.
