View Full Version : Unable to Format CD-RW

17-08-2002, 03:18 PM
I keep getting the following error after about 35 seconds while trying to format a CD-RW using Ahead's (Nero) InCD version 3.3.1:-
"Error Code (0051-0005-0064-0000)
Illegal Request error occurred
Reboot your system or drive and try again.
Insert a new disc."
My system is as follows:-
Windows 98 SE
Burner:- HP CD-Writer Plus 8100i (Firmware 1.0g) (latest version)
Software:- Nero 5.590 and InCD 3.310 (both latest versions)

I have removed Adaptec's CD Burning plugin from Windows Media player 7.01)
After several removal and reloads of the software I am now at a loss for what to do next.
I've tried checking Ahead's web site for help but again have not found a solution.
If anyone can resolve my problem I would be most grateful.
Thanks Marty.

wot speed is the drive capable of? and wot speed can the cdrw disc handle, some cdrw discs are only meant for one type of speed, have you used the same cdrw before? try wipe the cd with CloneCD,it should tell you what the drive and cd can handle.
