    Im just about to throw out my yamaha 24 cd burner into the garbage .

    It was given to me and I now know why.
    IM running win 98se and it doesnt what to see any disk I put in it.
    In windows system properties I see the cdromm
    when I load a cd I cant see it.

    I loaded nero and it sees the burner but it thinks theres no cd in it therefore it wont burn anything.

    Is there a fix I can do
    maybe open it up and blow on it LOL
    I realy dont know what to do inside a cd burner or cd rom for that matter.

    thumbs up or thumbs down?

    or just go pick up another one ?

    Try updating the firmware for your Yamy. Use Win ASPI 4.6 and be sure the burning program supports your Yamy.

    Ok I reloaded the flash and loaded aspi.
    and I still cant see any cd I put into it.
    when I first put the cd in I hear the cdrw
    running then the light flashes turns blue
    then it finishes and the light goes white
    stops spinning white light is on all the time
    now and it was on all the time even before flashing and is still on.
    the cdrw still doesnt know if anything is in it.

    thanks for your reply Shoey
    Do I throw it in the garbage now?

    Im Device manager is your Yamy listed and does it say "this device is working properly? If so try a different brand media (cdr& cdrw and write to the disc see what happens m8. What exact firmware version did you use to flash your Yamy?

    I have had similar problems with nero, try switching to alcohol 120 % and you will see a difference hopefully.

    Can't go wrong upgrading to Win2K or WinXP m8. Mikersoft doesn't offer support for Win98(SE) anymore (updates)?.

    I know XP is the best op. sys. going
    and should only recomended for the newer
    computers only.
    If I was to upgrade to XP all my games wouldnt work.What up with that.
    You have to load both win 98se and XP.
    just to enjoy.
    Im sticking with Win98se Its the best for me.

    You can upgrade to Win2K Pro and still play your older games. I have 2 daughters I know the feeling when my youngest one screams at me because I can't install older games on WinXP. Win98& SE is outdated and you have NO support unless you have already saved the Mikersoft updates to hard disc (I have). You would have to order them through Mikersoft. The best 2 O\S are Win2k Pro\WinXP.

    I was watching tech tv the other day
    and they say that xp is #1 and if your computer is older they preffered win 98se above all.
    I was also read computing magazine and they said the same thing as tech tv said.

    I personally dont know and trust your opinion
    Shoey Ive never tryed all the OS ther are.

    Why TV Tech endorsed Win98(SE) is beyond me simply because Mikersoft no longer offers support for this O\S. If you have all the updates and running a slow pc, then maybe Win98(SE) is best for you m8. I've runall all the O\S and Win2K Pro\WinXP beats them all (hands down).

    them all.
