    I burnt a CD on Toast and it was successful but I have problems reading it.

    In Toast I mounted it after and it opened fine but when I ejected it and put it back in to test again, it read the CD is blank.

    I look at the CD and it clearly has been burned because you can see the burn lines.

    I have problems burning DVD's too but I will attack one problem at a time. :mad:

    I hope someone can help me resolve these issues. AHHHH :confused:

    Did you ever figure out what was going on with your drive? I have the same thing going on with my drive. A friend gave me a CD with pictures on it and it shows up as blank. If you know of a solution can you please let me know?
