from the begining I can write CD-RW's and I once wrote a
CD-R, but can now can only write CD-RW's and cannot write
CD-R's, I have tried using different brands of CD-R, but
whenever I try to write a CD-r I get an error message
stating that the disk is no longer usable. when i try
copying audio files using Windows Media Player I get the
error message "invalid alignment was specified"
I suspected that the CD-RW driver may be corrupted but
found that I have an IDE device that uses IDE controlers
on the motherboard. I was then advised to reinstall
Windows XP but I bought the computer with Windows XP
already installed and don't have a Windows XP disk.
Please give me any and all advice that you think might be
of use to me, it would be much appreciated, thank you.
