'[OT]: cd recorders'
2002\08\21@160237 by Mike Mansheim

I've just finally gotten a CD-RW recorder, and have been experimenting
with reading the burned CD's (both R & RW) in other drives.  In both of
the other drives I have available to check, I can eventually read the
CD's, but not right away.  The drives are "not ready" for varying amounts
of time.  It sounds almost as though they have to "spool up" before they
can be read.  When the CD is inserted, the drives make noise, even though
there is no auto-start stuff on them (just files).  The whole process
doesn't seem very reliable.
- Is there a way to "tickle" the drives to get them up to speed before
 trying to access them, if that is the problem?
- What is different about "regular" cd's that they don't exhibit this?
 (I can always access them right away).

Thanks for any light anyone can shed!

Try burning at a slower speed, using higher quality blanks and turn off
anything like directcd or any other cd monitoring programs.

Cheers

There are a lot of information about CDR/RW on the Net.
You might read such magazines as "Chip", "PC-World" etc.
They regularly publish articles about CDR/RW technology,
make comparative tests of CDR/RW devices.

i think your cd drive is too old to read cdrw's. i myself have drives that
don't read cdrw, and the oldest ones are not even able to read cdr.

Did the write get properly "closed" so that the resultant CD looks like a
proper read only CD? I seem to remember this gives CD read only drives a
problem.

Both Samsung-40X(2.5 years) and LG-24x10x16(0.5 year)
read well. I use LG CD/RW and LG, Samsung and
Verbatim CD/R disks.
I use the CD/RW only to back up data. All installations,
music, video etc. - from the CD/R drive.
Even then I prefer sometimes to create an image by
CD Clone of the CD/R on my HDD to use it as virtual
drive.
