This is a problem which has got gradually worse. Initially, the CD/RW drive was very slow in reading burned data, it would spin and spin until it finally read something. Then, especially with large files, it would read part of it and then give up with a reciprocity failure message. Now, it doesn't even see the disks at all! I also have a DVD drive and it's the same story there. It doesn't see the disk. However, the same CD's read without problem on other machines and I can still play CD-ROMS in either drive. These fire up immediately and play fine. I'm burning with Nero 184.108.40.206 on a W2K machine. Is it the burning or the reading that's the problem, or both?
