Can't erase or rewrite a CDRW over GCC-4480B !!

    I'm trying to re-use some previously burned CDRW.

    This is the CDRW ATIP :

    *** Disc ATIP code information ***

    ATIP Last possible start time of Lead-out: 79m59s74f (LBA: 359999)

    Maximum Write Speed Supported (with current Disc): 8X (1200 KB/Sec)
    Current Read Speed Supported (with current Disc): 20X (3000 KB/Sec)
    Current Write Speed Supported (with current Disc): 4X (600 KB/Sec)

    I'm using the GCC-4480B combo drive with firmware 1.02.

    1) I've tried a FULL ERASE (not quick)
    2) I've tried so far 6 different software to erase the CDRW's.

    (Alcohol, Nero, InCD, Blindwrite, burnonce, Clone CD)

    Normally, i'm getting an LBA error in the middle of each disc.
    (Or sometimes the erase job is completed very quickly but visual inspection showing only half of the cdrw was effectively erased.)

    3) I've tried 5 different CDRW media. (but from same manufacturer)

    4) I could write a cd image, but the job will abort with an error
    at random LBA sectors around the middle of the disc.

    What could be wrong:

    the CDRW Media or the Combo Drive ?

    1. To eliminate the possibility of the media either (a) use a totall different RW disc or (b) try that RW disc on a different computer.

    2. Try to burn something on the RW disc... if it does not burn properly then i would say ur burner is toast. If it does burn correctly, then we can start to look for conflicts elsewhere (resource, aspi, drivers, background ops etc)

    3. Try burning at both the highest possible speed and the lowest possible speed._X_X_X_X_X_[small]ASUS A7V333+RAID, AMD2100+

    did you burn the cdrw discs on the same drive? so you made the images on them?

    did you use multi session and not finalize?

    what make are your discs? i had some IMATION worked great for say 4 times! then scrap!

    A1: I've tried 5 different CDRW so far on the same computer with GCC-4480B. Same problems with all of them.

    But if i use them over another cdrw device (alike hp 9100 series, the media could be erased correctly!!)

    (I didn't tried to burn the cdrw with the hp)

    I was assuming if the erase was good, then i probably could burn..

    A2 : I've tried to burn different data in also different way using different software.

    (UDF packet writing, InCD format, Mount Rainier, etc..)

    Getting LBA errors on the GCC-4480B..

    A3: The media were labeled 1x-4x as the maximum.
    But the ATIP showing 8x.

    I've tried 1x & 4x so far.. I'm going to test 8x.
