I have a Plextor 708-A and a spindle of Memorex CD-R 700 MB/80 minute that I have had for many years. I recently tried to burn some music on to a disc and was told by NERO that the media is not blank. I tried about ten of them and they all said the same thing.
My drive has not been the most consistent with CD-ROM media, but I can get it to play pre-pressed music cds with little issue. Burning on to DVD+R media has been no issue either.
Do you think this is expried CD-R issues or something else?
