Recording Problem - 10/14/2003 4:35:29 PM

I have been having trouble burning cds. I use a SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-616T to read data (which seems to work) and an HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8481B to record data. When I first started burning cd's I used some old generic 80 minute blanks. The first few blanks worked fine but then they started having many errors. An old 74 min cd-rw would still record fine, however. On the strength of some positive reviews, I bought some fuji/taiyo-yuden blanks to try.

These have worked until now. Just a few days ago, however, they stopped recording accurately. I am wondering if this problem is due to a loss of calibration in my burner; the problem appeared after I opened my computor to get some information about my modem. Perhaps my burner was jostled. ALthough the 80 minmute blanks won't record accurately my 74 minute cd-rw, which has a broader groove, works fine.

Any thoughts on how I can correct this problem?

Do you get the same problem if you use your writer as the reader [?]

I recorded a cd and compared the file with the cd using the burner. The first time I did this the comparison gave an error in the last track. However, when I did this two more times no error was reported. Perhaps the problem was some dirt.

Yes, this does sound like a dirt issue. Get a can of compressed air (available at your local shops) and open the tray on the cdrw and clean it thoroughly. The best way to accomplish this is to complete remove the drive, and then the drive's cover for best results. If you are uncomfortable doing this, you can use the first method that I described above.
