They play in my car. the burned area of the CD is very light I is dificult to see that the disk has been burned. I got it replaced once by philips after a month of back an forth emails. The shipping cost $20 so I am not interested in trying that again. I have tried switching SATA ports and cables and CD media brands from TDK to verbatim. If I use my old plextor burner I don't have any problems.
I’m running into that exact same problem with somePioneer 212D sata burners. Never have problems with plextor reading the discs in the past either. Did you ever find anything as the source of the problem?
