Thread Starter 
when i had vista, i could erase them perfectly fine, and dvd's

but i went back to XP and now i cant erase them, i couldnt erase them when i had xp before either, does anyone know for sure what i have to do?

its a lite-on 804s or 802s, something like that

are you trying to do it within windows itself or a program like nero? nero works fine for me.

You mean 5000+BE, right? I don't think that AMD released a black edition 5600+. If you're looking for an easy 3.0, then just buy the 5000+BE and up the multi a couple times and you're there. You may need to up the voltage a little bit, but I'm rock solid at 3.0!
