The drive can read CDR's and "real" cds without problem, but when I insert a CDRW the computer can't transfer files or run large programs from it. Explorer can see the contents, and I can even open a small text file or pic, but if I try to copy files from it or install a program the computer will just barely get started then fail. I think this must be a hardware probelm with the you agree? Do drives wear out and have a problem reading the RW disks before they have a problem reading real cds? Thanks for any thoughts...
