Question about Pacific Digital X-treme CD-RW Burner

Open Question

Pacific Digital CD-RW drive writes read only

I am writing library lesson powerpoints. I wrote them to my external CD drive. The are read only. Can I write them to a CD as editable files so I can edit them off the CDs and not have to store them all on my ancient Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop (getting a Mac when I can afford it for security reasons). Also, my letter y wont type half the time on my keyboard. Really would appreciate your help. Valerie Krein Pasadena, CA

SOURCE: U30274 Burner hangs while writing DVDs

If it were the item you were trying to burn that causes the hanging, in other words a corrupt file, then that maybe the fault, but if it hangs with any other file your trying to burn, either your memory is being used up burning the files or you have a faulty burner, assuming you have tried different makes of dvd disks. Unless you have a dual processor, it's not wise using the pc for anything else at the same time.

You might be experiencing the results of years of registry clutter accumulating. I would recommend you download a free copy of CCleaner from here:
http://www.ccleaner.com/download and follow these instructions to clear out some of the clutter. Your system might just right itself!
Read this review and it will help you to get some familiarity with this product. http://www.ccleanerdownload.org/piriforms-ccleaner-the-step-by-step-review-tutorial
There are few times when I recommend this type of cleaning, but it sounds like you would benefit from it. Make sure when you are asked if you want to back up your registry that you do so. And if you know how to create a new restore point, I would recommend you do that before running CCleaner for the first time. That way if you have any issues you can restore your system back to the settings you had in effect before running the application.
Good luck, and let me know how it works out!

This device is meant only for CDs. However, the drive is an internal CDRW with IDE interface. You can substitute some DVDRW drives, but some DVD drives are picky about voltage and amperage. This enclosure is on the weak side for most DVDRW drives. You'll want to find a DVDRW that can work on as low as 8VDC on the 12VDC line. And the drive can't draw any more than .75A on the 12VDC line either. If the drive requires higher amounts, yor system may only recognize the drive as being connected to your system, but it'll never have the power to read the disc, and just kick it out after spinning the disc around for a short time.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. I would like to know if this is happening on all other CD's and DVD's? When was the last time you were able to use the device? Please try to use a different cd or dvd to check if the dvdrom is not reading all type of disk. Please provide information needed to be able to provide you the information about the issue.
Thanks

How do you erase songs on a CD? I put songs on a CD and would like them to be clear of the CD.


If you wrote to a 'CD-R' disk, then you cannot "erase", because it is "write-once-read-many".

In the unlikely case that you wrote to a CD/RW ("rewritable") disk, you can _erase_ the entire disk.

So, in both cases, you need to "rip" the "good' tracks from the CD, writing to your 'C:' drive, and then write a new CD-R disk.

Take a pair of scissors to the "old' CD-R disk, so that nobody can play the music on that disk.

You can also confirm the same by looking at the drive externally

If it has DVD-RW and DVD-RW DL on it then it can read and write CD/DVDs
DVD - R ROM then it can read DVDs but cannot write.

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
