Can't erase RW disks

Recommended Posts

Guest grizzly

I want to burn a Knoppix Linux image on a CD-RW. But somehow CDBurnerXP can't erase the disk. It shows a message that the disk is successfully erased, but I can still access it in the windows explorer. It doesn't matter what kind of erase method I select and also if the burner ejects the disk after it or not. :(

If I let the windows explorer do the job, it works perfectly. So it's not a problem of the burner or an incompatibility between the burner and the disk.

OS: Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1

Drive: TSSTcorp DVDWBD SH-B123L (Samsung SATA Bluray Drive/CD&DVD Burner Combo)

Disk: Verbatim DataLifePlus UltraSpeed CD_RW, 16-24x, 700 MB

Installed CDBurnerXP version: cdbxp_setup_4.3.8.2560_x64_minimal.exe

I execute the program with administrator rights.

Now I've burned the ISO image with the windows explorer. And it also worked perfectly. Hm... :-?

Got the same situation - CDBurnerXP claims that the disk (dvd-rw) is empty and don't erase it (but it has some data on it). Internal windows tools for erasing work as expected.

My DVD-drive is ASUS DRW-24B3LT
