I have burned Memorex CD-RW discs in my Imac Intel Core 2 Duo 24" machine in the past but can no longer do so. When I go to erase CD-RW disks I have successfully used before in this machine, they no longer can be erased. When I try to burn to a blank CD-RW disk that have been used before in this machine, I get an error whether I try to burn from the finder or from iTunes 10. I can read these CD-RW disks, and I can erase and burn DVD-RW disks that I have used before.

Why would I no longer be able to burn to CD-RW disks?
iMac Intel Core 2 Duo 24", Mac OS X (10.6.1)

    What are you using to erase them? Disk Utility? What error message is displayed when you try?
    iMac (3.06GHz Intel, OS X 10.6.4), eMac (1.25GHz PowerPC G4, OS X 10.5.8)
