I have a Samsung 52x24x52 CD-RW as well as Easy CD Creator 5. I've been burning stuff to a certain type of disks... TDK brand name and all has gone very very well for me. Well, lately, with the same disks, my burner doesn't burn into them. It acts like it does, it wastes my time, it makes the noise, the red light showing it's burning is on on the drive. I take out the CD, try to play/use it, and nothing can read it. It's blank! I can even try to burn something else on it b/c my computer thinks it's a blank! I haven't recently modified my startup. All my CD utilies and stuff are enabled to boot. It doesn't make sense. Why would it stop working? I have all the latest patches for everything. All cables/wires are plugged in snug and correctly. Thanks for your time.
