Cable looks ok, removed and reinstalled, used it before with
a second hard disk. CDRW may be broken. don't know, but at
least nothing appear broken all around the device.
CD was read with an other CDROM reader.
Never seen CDRW working reliably till now. But never used it
through Windows, don't have it since 4 years. I might at least
check if it could work on Windows.

Whatever thanks a lot for your time, was greatly appreciated,
