how do i test my burner?
im actually getting around 2 in 5 cds being crap and not working, however this is using 16x Memorex jungle.com 80mins, although i am only burning at 16X (originally i thought it was because i was burning the CDs too fast, but that does not seem to be the case). How do i know if its the media or my CDRW thats dying? Im getting a new Liteon 32x however ive already ordered 50x 32x Datasafe silver Premium CDrs so i guess i cud try a load of them, but isn;t there a way i can say BAM! my CDRW is screwed and its going back to the repair shop? I've already had one Plextor (1610TA) go funny on me which i got replaced or repaired i dont know which, so i cant help but feel a little weary that my CDRW is most likely at fault... thx

I had to read this post 5 times before i could understand it a little.
You had big grades in grammar class ?
There's, in my point of view , one way to test if your cd writer is gone wacky. And that's to write , write and write again. You could use a CD-RW disc for that to save a lot of money.
If it's under warranty and its writing sucks ; I suggest bringing it back.
As for the media.. I've heard from Memorex and i have never heard Memorex being praised as a good quality stable cd media.
This hasn't have to be a bad thing in general.
My experience is that you pay for good quality.
In the cdfreaks shop there are lots of high quality cd-r's.
It couldn't hurt of course to change to another brand for a while.
Now that I have children I can see how tuned they are to the world. Living crystals tuned to all manner of frequencies. And how urgently they need to be heard. They look up and they say, look at me. And I put my phone away.
