Files burnt are empty (LTR-48246S,Nero,win98se)

Post by Trevor Hil » Thu, 27 Feb 2003 21:10:33

Drive: LTR - 48246S
Firmware: R48SS0B
Software: Nero
OS: Windows 98se
System: AMD XP 1700+, 512Mb RAM, Gigabyte GA-7DX+ MB, 40Gb 7200rpm HDD

Files burnt to CD can be read and copied back to HDD. On trying to
execute those files (mp3, exe, zip) the associated application
reported that the files were corrupt. The files are the same size as
the originals but on examining the files with a hex editor it can be
seen that they contain no data (all zeros)! I had burnt several disks
in a row, all at 48x speed on to 48x speed media (BenQ CDR 80Min 700MB
48x). Not all the files on a particular CD are corrupted, that is some
files are fine others contain all zeros.

What could be causing this and what can I do to prevent it happening


(btw, just installed Win2k Pro, was burning the disks as backups
before the upgrade, I've lost a lot of data 'cuase i didn't take the
time to go back through all the disks I burnt and check that ALL the
files were ok...)
