Thanks very much.
I’ve been using computers since the early 80s, when I had a Zorba CP/M, and so I’ve seen a lot. It’s still astounding to me that following all the problems associated with first burning CDs (media, writers, standards, etc.) that today there is still the same trouble. These international companies are still making products that absolutely suck. It appears that the same corporate mentalities that saw these same errors over so many years are still tolerating them.
So what do do with my remaining stock? Are they any good for data files or do they exhibit the same problems there? If I can use these WinData and Memorex disks for photos and other projects, well, okay. But if they’re pre-burned coasters, then what?
Can I buy a burner that [I]will[/I] burn to these disks? Burners are cheap and a burner that will work might be worth the investment.
Should the Verbatim disks be all I’ll need, or do you think I’ll also need a new burning engine like Image Express?
DVD Fab seems to be a good DVD burner, but is it possible this program has anything to do with anything? The coasters really started popping out when I asked DVD Fab to verify the writes.
If I use the faster Verbatim disks and slow down the writing, will that work?
Again, thanks. I’ll order the Verbatim and stop screwing around.
P.S. Thanks for the info, Beef. I’ll read your recommended posts!
