Not sure yet if this is about software or a hardware problem, so this question is maybe in the wrong board;
I used an old laptop to "burn" an iso using tdk CD-R, trying several different ISO files, DeepBurner Freeware as the software. The discs so written did not work.
I also used different CD-R brand on a newer laptop using Disc Creator to "burn" the ISO's. I also used one of the old tkd CD-R's.
The ISO's written to the newer discs using the newer laptop (having Disc Creator program) all worked; the CD-R's of TDK all failed, regardless which machine I used.
I guess I'm not really done testing the ISO writing, but I wonder might the DeepBurner software not be adequate, even though is specifically has the ISO Burn feature (this is what I installed on the older laptop), or maybe is the CD Writing drive in the older computer not adequate for the ISO writing jobs? I have used the CD Write disc drive plenty of times for making data and program CD's having no problems.
when I say that certain discs "did not work", I mean, I could not use them; when I started the computer or tried putting them in the CD drive, the computer would not respond and I needed to remove the disc to regain normal computer function withOUT the disc, and I could never read any content on the disc, and the drive would circulate just making a sound like wizzing or something.
Systems: Toshiba Satellite 1415-s115, Windows XP sp3, DeepBurner Freeware Cd&DVD&ISO writing software program; Toshiba Satellite P305-s8822, Windows Vista Home Prem, Disc Creator CD&DVD (yes and ISO also) writing software included with the machine by Toshiba. (The DeepBurner does not normally come on that older Toshiba but since I was not sure if the Toshiba's CD Write software would handle ISO burns, I installed DeepBurner, which DOES write ISO).
