Hi there,

Here's my problem:
I have a problem burning CD-Roms. When I burn a CD the process terminates correctly. When I look on the CD, there's nothing there!!
When I put the CD in another CD-Rom drive, same thing...
The CD is only readable in a Burning software program (Nero). There I can make an image from the faulty CD-R. The image is OK!
What happens here?? It seems the burning laser generates too little power... So the burning is done, but the CD-R is usesless.

Please help!!!

Conf:
Targa Visionary XP laptop (AMD 2200+)
CD-RW drive: Samsung CD-RW/DVD SN-324B

Thanks

It could be as simple as a dirty lens. Have you tried cd-rw's? Also make sure the software is set right. I had that happen to me. It said it was making an image, which it was, on my hard drive.

Try XP's burner to see if you can burn a readable CD that way.

Select files to burn, right-click and Send To your burner.

Open My Computer, open the CD-RW drive, click File, and burn your CD.

ok i'll try cd-rw's. I know the software and how it works.

I'll clean the lens.. Earlier it did work all fine. So maybe it's just that.
I'll let you know!
