I'm In Big Trouble (cannot Burn Anything)

Hi, there...

I have an eMac and I'm in big trouble... I can't burn CD's or DVD's (although I can read them...) When I insert a blank CD or DVD, everything seems fine: the files are copied, then burned... But when verification begins, the CD is spit out, with a message: Error Code 6 (overflow). I ran the Hardware Test and everything seems OK. Then I ran Norton Disk Doctor and First Aid. First Aid reported missing threads: Missing thread record (and 4 different ID's), as well as 3 Invalid volume directory counts. I borrowed an external 3rd Party CD Reader/Writer (Que!USB) to try to burn my files there, I plugged it on the USB Bus 0, which is recognized on the device/volumes, but when I run the Adaptec Toaster (on Classic) it says I don't have a writer... I've read some suggestions for this problem in other forums (using 650 MB discs instead of 700 MB discs, and trying with different burning speeds) I couldn't find any 650 MB at any local computer store and changing speeds doesn't work either... HHEEEEELLLLP! :confused: :eek: :(

Have you tried using cd with a slower speed? I don't know a lot about this stuff but I had a similar problem and I bought some very slow speed cds and everything worked fine.

I'm sorry if that doesn't work but it's all I have to offer you. I'm sure some of the ithers will help you this evening. It's amzing what they know and how fast they reply. This is a really great forum. Just wait- you'll see.

Gee, thanks for your reply, Octohunter... I did try it and didn't work either... But it looks like I finally solved the problem... In my desperation, I surfed in other forums and found that someone else had had a similar problem and fixed it by using a CD/DVD Lens Cleaner... IT WORKED!

Anyways, I still have problems with my missing volume threads and invalid directory counts... I think I'm going to reinstall everything just in case... Or... Does anybody know how to fix missing thread records and invalid volume directory counts?
:eek:

if you are running OS X, then Norton Disk Doctor will do yo umore harm than good. If you are running OS 9 the Norton is okay. If you are running OS X, then disk warrior is better for resolving disk problems.
