CD Recorder problem

I have a Yamaha CRW8824E Cd recorder that has some troubles burning image files 500MB or more. No matter what burning program I use that is what happens. It will just quit 3/4 of the way done. What could be the cause of this?

if you want another alternative, load the image's cue sheet with daemon tools, then make a "cd reader to cd recorder" copy using dj or cdrwin, or ur program of choice. I had a similar problem one time i tried burning at 1 or 2x speed, but the error message said buffer under-run. Hope this helps.

I got the same burner and no problems at all.

there was only 1 firmware update for it, and it had nothing to do with that.. worked fine with the old firmware for me too.

Definitely a hardware problem. Try putting in a CD that you know is full (more than 500MB of data on it), and reading everything on it, i.e. by copying all files to a temp. folder on your HD or something. See if your CD recorder fails to read the outer edge of the CD...if yes, you have your confirmation: Buy a new recorder.
 
A CD-R on the fritz is a pain in the ass, the laser probably cannot move to the outer edge of the disc (past hte 500 meg mark) so it would just be best to get a new burner.
