|My guess is that the cd-rom is bad. The burner and reader are not the same parts. |
It may be possible to boot to a live cd in ram or usb distro to see if it is OS related.
I guess it could be that you need a different brand of cd-r cdrw too. Some older ones are very speed specific.
Get one or two of the black ones. I have always had good luck with those. Dunno why but they seem to burn on any old system.
Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
