Does the RW in CD-RW mean "Twice?"

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Please forgive the slightly off topic nature of this post. But, I know

you guys know the answer!

I am using cd BurnerXP Pro V 3.0.116, a Plextor 52/24/52A

IDE CD-RW, Windows 2000 SP4, and Memorix Ultra CD-RW disks.

Problem: after writing on them twice and eraseing them twice (sometimes

three times),I a get a lot of "Verify" errors when writing to them. I have tried

both the quick and the complete erase with no symptom change.

Question: Does the "RW" in CD-RW mean good for two erasures?

Arn't they supposed to be erased several times? Am I missing something?

What is the spec for re-writes?

And, if these disks are just cheezy (poor quality), which RW's do you guys

use and how many times can you expect to erase them?

Many thanks,

--Tony

No.

Yes.

Am I missing something?

I don't think so.

What is the spec for re-writes?

Usually about 100 times eraseable.

And, if these disks are just cheezy (poor quality), which RW's do you guys

use and how many times can you expect to erase them?

Usually those Memorex RWs shold be OK, if not you can try any other vendor. Maybe the CDs you had were just old or something like that.
