cd-r freeze ups

  Newuser2352 19:35 03 Mar 03

I have a phillips cd-rw drive 4x/4x/24x and easy cd creator v3.5c. when i try to copy on to cd-r disc the burn gets to about 90% and then freezes the system but if i copy to a cd-rw disc everything is fine. i have tried different makes of cd-r discs but that does not help. i hope that someone may have an answer because i am at a loss.

Have you set the cdrw in the device manager to DMA ?

What operating system are you using?

yes andy it is set to DMA and i am using windows 98 SE

Ok It may be the cdr's compatability... or the recorder failing

But I susspect its more likely a software problem first go Start/Settings/Control Panel and choose System choose Device Manager and right click on the Phillips drive and uninstall it... now reboot and let windows reinstall it. See if its sorted the problem... if not then Start/Settings/Control Panel and choose Add/Remove Programs and remove easy cd then reinstall from the disk.
