I bought an Yamaha CRW F1 retail one weak ago.My previous writer yamaha CRW2100E was broken....it didn't read well 6 cd's that were read PERFECT on any CD/CD WRITER non-Yamaha...The service of the company that sold me the writer said it would cost me 50$ to repair it..they said the optical unit was damaged.
So I bought the CRW F1.And after I installed it I had a big surprise...this new writer couldn't read well the cd's too...
The cd's are Traxdata(made by ritek) & eurodata(made by Multi Media Masters Machinery S.A.).They were written by a mitsumi 32x , a philips 16x and a teac 24x.
3 cd's written by the mitsumi aren't read at all....when i try to access them windows tells me to insert a cd in the unit..the other 3 cd's give an read error at the end of the cd's...1-2 files on these 3 cd's aren't read..they are on the end of the CD...
Both writers write perfect.
They don't report any damaged sectors with CD Speed scan disk...only file errors.
Are both writers damaged ... should I send in service this new writer ??
Other cd's are read perfectly ....even other traxdata's & eurodata's ..all the cd's were written at 16x...
So .. what should i DO ?

Well the first thing to do (if you already have not done so ) would to Upgrade the Firmware of your F1 to 1.0f which is the latest version and see if that makes any difference !!!
I hope this Helps !!!

there are some cd's that are read with errors on the old yamaha and perfect with the new one..but the rest 6 are read bad on both units...

Well personaly I think it is down to the Media and If you have another Reader I suggest you try and make an image of the faulty CD's with Clone Cd and then burn them with the F1 and see how you go on with that !!!
I hope this Helps !!!

As I said earlier I thought it may be the Media that was faulty but now we know it is the best thing to do is to try and Salvage what you can with another reader. Anyway at least we got to the bottom of the problem !!!

The best answer to that is not to use BAD MEDIA then you won't get any problems !!!
