All this talk of CD archiving brought to mind a problem I'd like to ask the
list about. I have a Yamaha 4x2x? SCSI CD-RW and have successfully used it
for a few years without any problems. In my opinion Yamaha is one of the
best brands out there.
The problem is this. I normally use Verbatim CDRs (white top, blue bottom)
with no problems. Recently CompUSA had a deal on 100 12X CDRs (silver
top, green bottom) for $20US. I couldn't pass it up. When I use Adaptec
CD Creator Deluxe (version 4.5, the most recent) it says it recorded the CD
successfully, but when I try looking at it in the CD-RW drive or any CD-ROM
drive for that matter, I see nothing. CD Creator says the CD is still
"blank recordable media". If I physically look at the CD I can see the
ring where the burn stopped.
I'm trying to record the CD as an audio CD and I'm using disk-at-once and
closing the session, but still no good. Has anyone experienced this
before. Are the CompUSA CDRs just bad. I now have at least half a dozen
My next step was to try recording a data CD, and then maybe try using a
different software package all together.
