Ed, I had the same thing happen to some CD's I was trying to use for my data back up. When I got to the middle of the pack, they finally worked. My tech guy asked where I bought them......
Walmart, why? I got a good name brand :mellow: .
He asked, did they scan them? <_< Yeah, so?
Then that is your problem...... What :huh: ??
They scan the bar code with a lazer :idea: , so the CD's become damaged. :eek:
Oh, so I that's why the one in the middle of package, hidden by the label, worked. :mellow:
Yeap, next time make sure they do NOT scan them, and ring the code up by hand.

Have not had a problem since, so it makes since to me. ;)

Try an other new quality CDR, verify the max speed while burning

If still the same problem:
I have the experience the ECDCreator software version 4 and 5 were very sensitive for corruption by viruses and other installed non-wel-be-haved software. Only a format and the re-installation of all the software has resolved the problem :( (that's the reason why I'am using Norton Ghost as a backupsoftware of my PC-system).

If still problems : replace the cd-writer

THANKS TO ALL,

The drive was bad, was two years old but had only burned about 20 cd's.

GOT ROXIO CREATOR 6---WILL SPAN MULTI DISKS just like old backuo to floppys.

Now I can save complete docs, ACI, and all Email on 3 disks with 5-7 clicks.

Wonderful, ed in the sticks(Arkansas)

Spanning multiple CDs? Time to think about DVD. Instead of 600M on a disc, you'll get 4.7G-17G. And the DVD technology just keeps improving. With regard to formats, Microsoft is going to support all popular formats.

THANKS to all.

I just backed up our MLS. Took 4 cd's and about 16 minutes.

Our ACI files took 2 disks, can restore all or selected files.

DVD external is next purchase, will do about 4 gigs.

Good by tape.
