I believe you are misinterpreting what Forum Member mciahel and I are saying. There isnâ€™t any thing â€˜wrongâ€™ with the Vista Operating System and/or your TS-L632H Optical Drive. It just the known problematic Windows Vista Operating System Native Burning Software. Your TS-L632H Optical Drive will produce quality error free results â€“ you just need to use of known proven high quality error free Media.
If you use known proven high quality Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Media and a â€˜Realâ€™ Burning Software Program you shouldnâ€™t have any problems with your TS-L632H Optical Drive.
A excellent quality error free â€˜freewareâ€™ CD/DVD burning program is ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com). There are other good CD/DVD burning programs available â€“ suggest visiting the below CDFreaks Forum posting and look under the CD/DVD Burning ->
Also to ensure you are producing quality error free Burned CD/DVD Disk with your TS-L632H Optical Drive suggest checking your Media Disk after Burning. Suggest using a diagnostic software utility similar to N e r o CD DVD Speed (http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroCDSpeed_47716.zip) and perform a ScanDisc surface scan on your burned Media Disk. If the N e r o ScanDisc surface scan reveals ANY Yellow Damaged and/or Red Bad sectors indicates a â€˜Defectiveâ€™ â€˜Bad Burnâ€™ and somewhere down the line the burn data will be difficult to retrieve. A quality error free Burn should not contain ANY Yellow Damaged and/or Red Bad sectors.
Another Point â€“ Donâ€™t make the mistake of totally relying on â€˜Thumb-Driveâ€™ as you sole data backup source. â€˜Thumb-Driveâ€™ are also prone to failure and will lose data. If you really value your â€˜Importantâ€™ data you should have a couple of different data backups up sources â€“ suggest an external USB/FireWire Hard Drive, CD DVD Media, and Thumb-Drive. Donâ€™t make the mistake of putting your eggs in just one basket.
