Problem burning cd's

  1. #11


    A few things come to mind from my experience. First, the CD lens does get dust on it. Make sure it's clean. I know this is obvious, but sometimes overlooked. CD drives do fail and are not very expensive. Have you tried another one? Another thing, sometimes I have gotten a bad batch of CD's, several in the package are bad, or sometimes the whole package. Try a CD from another batch or brand.

    when I right click ,share with doesn't have a dvd-rw option ,but I have it in the send to ,so I click that .

    I think what iam doing is a little different ,because iam not choosing enough file to fill the disk ,you are using a new disk every time ,and not getting the how do you want to use it ,with the 2 options each time , not sure why it would do that .

    That doesn't usually matter, I've put as little as 172KB on a CD-R disc for archiving data retrieved from 4 floppy disks for a lady. Granted, it does look like a waste but at $24.95 to $29.95 for a 'cakebox' of 100 discs it actually works out to less than what one of the floppies used to cost in a box of 10.

    ok,iam on win10 right now with no files to burn ,will try in a bit when I go back on win8


    edit---
    ok,i see the toolbar share and yes it works for me there to ,but once you say that you want to use it as a usb drive ,you will only be asked this once for each cd-r.
    and as countmike says ,you can keep adding file till the disk is full, then you choose close session to finalise the cd-r

    Unless you "Close Session" on a disk, CD or DVD you can always ad more up to it's capacity. Only exceptions are when burning an ISO file and with "musical, CDA " disks when session is closed automatically.
