Okay, last week I had this error on some MBI 52X discs. They refused to burn in any program (tried Nero 126.96.36.199, burnatonce 3.99, nero 6.0.11). There was a very long lead-in time during which my drive spun up and down many times, and then the burn failed,giving me the PMA error. I bought a spindle of Acer 48X media, and burnt 2 in a row. They worked well. HOwever, today I tried again, and I got this error in burnatonce:

Any idea why this happens? Drive problem? It wrote to a 4X CDRW fine though.
