I have a new Mitsubishi Diamond Digital CD_RW Combo that plays DVDs, reads data and music disks, will write to re-writable disks, but will not write to read-only CDs.

It came with Nero 6 OEM software.

Anyone know the files that control the burning process?

You cannot write to Read Only CDs. They are Read only - you need a recordable or rewriteable CD to be able to write to CD.

?? Isnt a CDRW combo just that?? DVD and CDRW, which SHOULD do cdr's and cdrw's?? Why wouldnt it do cdr's?

What exactly are u trying to burn Irollo??

MP3's/data/?? If Mp3's Nero should do that. If data, you have to use multisession with Nero, or use a program like CD Creator, INCD (BUT not both), or this http://www.cdburnerxp.se/ which is free. BUT I've never used it, so dont know how good it is.

Spacemannz, if a disk is read only you can only read from it, you cannot write to it, hence the term "Read Only".

It depends what he means by read only. He maybe talking about cdr's not cds that have actually be finalised or ones u buy from a shop.

:) True. But I would have hoped in that case he would have referred to CDR rather than read only CD... but I guess I'm just being pedantic. But if he never replies I guess we'll never know.
