If you burn many cds for people surely someone has ran into the same problem I have. I burned a few cdrs and the other guys 2+yr old cdrom drive cant read it. Media was 700meg cdrs. If I used 650meg cdrs would it help his drive to read it or do I need to tweak settings in my software? I can use Fireburner and EZ CD Creator...HELP!!!

The likely culprit is the 700MB CD-R. All though if it is a cheap no name CD drive it may have problems with all CD-Rs.

your friend cdr firmware is outdated. if the maker of his cd-rom has a web site goto and update the software for his unit.

Chances are that a 2+ year old CD drive isn't going to have any firmware updates but its worth a look.

yeah but he didn't state if is was a bullshit Hi-val drive or something kick ass like a plextor. cheapo drives all have a hard time reading no frills disks also he might only have it for 2 years but it could be a unit that sat somewhere for 5 years?
