I've spent months researching this problem without ever posting my question for fear of being blasted by the powers that be! I have exhausted all avenues and I'm in desperate need of help. The problem: I CAN burn CDRs without a hitch using ANY software (inc.Nero, MMJB, Roxio etc) and ANY brand of cd but I have NEVER been able to burn CDRWs even at speed x2. I've tried TDK, Verbatim, Memorex, Imation, Platinum, HP and many more but without success. At the end of every attempt it states: "Burn Successful" but the disk shows blank. I thought I'd found the answer on this forum but it turned out the solution to Skizz20's problem was simply he was using cheap media! I've tried burning at all speeds, mainly low (x2 and x4) but I get the same result; burn successful but blank disk. I can burn CDRs so why not CDRWs? It's driving me mad. I'm a photographer struggling for space on HD of my laptop and need to burn CDRWs or I'll end up with thousands of CDR disks with only 30-odd photos on each one - nightmare to manage. I have to get CDRWs burning! I've consulted many "computer people" but nobody understands why. I even rang Toshiba in the States but they wanted to charge me 50 dollars just to talk me through inserting my recovery disk which I already knew wasn't the answer. I've searched the Toshiba website for SD-R2102 driver updates in case that's the prob but didn't find any. Spec: Toshiba Satellite Intel Pentium III processor 1.10 GHz 512MB RAM Toshiba DVD-ROM SD-R2102 System: Windows XP Home Version 2002 Service Pack 1 (NB: Laptop came with OS above) Please help asap - I've got a headache from hitting my head on that wall so many times!
