I am having some trouble reading the data from a CD after writing to it.

I used Nero Burning ROM to burn a data CD and it reported that it burned successfully. However, when I ran the same CD and clicked on a file on the CD to open it, the system just hangs. To see if the problem was computer exclusive, I ran the CD on another computer and it did the same thing. Seems like my CD-RW is corrupting the data on the CD when it burns it.

I tried using other software to burn the CD and I still get the same results.

Any suggestions?

I tried burning it at a lower speed and when it finished, I got an error message that reads: Data verification failed

When I tried running the CD, I got the same problem as I had before: the system hangs.

I've had the CD-RW for about six months so I doubt it's because of old age.

Anything else I should try?

Yep, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it still gives me problems.

Hmm...I highly doubt that I am, but how do I check if I'm underpowered?

I checked the site for my power supply and my devices add up to 300 W of power. My power supply can handle 350 W. To be on the safe side, I disconnected my secondary CD-RW drive. According to the calculator, this should remove about 20 W.

After burning a test CD and reading from it, I still had the same problem. I just can't figure out what went wrong.

Any more suggestions? I really appreciate the help.

What are you trying to burn? If it is video you may not have the right
codecs to view what you have burned. Just a thought.

I have an Enermax 350 W power supply; this figure is without the 30% so if it is indeed a quality one, then it should be 455 W.

The amps on the 12 V rail is 26 A.

Here are the current readings:

Vcore1: 1.49V
Vcore2: 2.58V
+3.3V: 1.58V
+5V: 2.31V
+12V: 7.68V
-12V: -10.88V
-5V: -5.81V
+5V: 1.80V
Vbat: 0.00V

Fan1: 3375 RPM

and how do I find out if my power supply is a quality one?

Are you certain that the power is the problem? Earlier this year, I was able to copy CDs using two CD-RW drives, including the one that I'm having problems with now.

Is there nothing else I can do to get the CD-RW working again?

I ran the system diagnostics on both of my optical drives. I noticed that my primary optical drive (DVD-+RW drive), the one that I've been having problems with, had a C2 error.

I looked up the C2 error and I found that it indicates some kind of read problem. Do you think this is the type of problem that I'm experiencing and if so, how do I fix it?

Thanks

Hello,

Just wanted to give some closure on this thread.

I ordered another DVD-RW drive frlom Newegg to replace the one that I have right now. I tried burning a data CD and running it, and it worked.

I guess the previous drive that I had was simply a crappy one.

Thanks for the help.
