Default THIS DISK CAN NOT be read by this computer... HELP!!

I have a Beige G3 233MHZ with 8.1 MAC OS and it happens that once I backup with toaster (either 3.5.2 or 4.1), the CD´R can not be read by the CD-ROM of the G3. Mounting the Glyph CDR then I become able to read it.

It is important to tell you that right at the end of long back-ups, close to the CD limit which is 700MB, I always have messages like HARDWARE ERROR, LEADIN/OUT not written, SENSE KEY ERROR. If the backups are small, like 80MB there is no problem.

Also, I have an older Seagate and I keep on loosing info on it, some audiofiles disappear or tracks lose their sync.

When I try to copy from a DIGIDRIVE 18K or from the internal MAC HD, error messages appear. Also, sometimes the message: do you want to initialize the Seagate?

Hope to hear from you soon my friends from Digi or someone else out there!! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

It sounds like you have some serious directory corruption problems.

Try using
1. DiskWarrior
2. Norton Utilities
3. Techtool Pro

Rebuild your directories, desktop database and zap PRAM
Your CD Burner could be on the way out too. Consider buying a new one.

During startup hold down Option+Command+P+R

This resets all mac system parameters.
