    What software are you using to format the cd-rw?

    Welcome to TSG.

    Mot older burners that are limited to 4X re-write speed don’t like the new high speed media. If your burner is limited to 4X re-write (like 8-4-24) then stick with 4X RW.

    Conversely if your burner has high speed rewrite (like 48-12-48) then buy the media rated for high speed.

    That doesn’t apply to CDR though. You can burn 48X rated CDRs just fine in a 4X burner. The speed compatibility is only with RW.
