Why does my cd drive read some discs and not others. I bought a package of CD-R's to burn-Memorex to be exact.


They are all new, all came out of the same package, I've found a couple to work so far and a couple that did'nt. What's going on??

    It could be you have a finicky drive, but more likely it's that some of those discs are defective. Try another brand, such as TDK's and see how they work. Good luck.

    Some drives can be a bit finicky with burnt CDs. Try the discs in another drive/computer. If they work, it might be a sign that your drive is on the way out.

    I would check to make sure the discs aren't deffective, If they are the company will probably send you a whole new pack.
