Hi. I just found this site because I'm searching the internet for information on the issues I'm having with my burner. I have a laptop (Thinkpad) and a Matshita CD-RW 4x drive. Both are about 2.5 years old. Starting a few months ago, every time I try burning a CD at 4x, I get a buffer underrun error. The CD isn't ruined, though; nothing is done to it when that happens, and I can try again after it pops out. 2x would still work fine. Now, today, I'm trying to get some audio tracks off some of my CDs, and my drive is having a really hard time getting started. I'll put the CD in and the drive clicks into place and then doesn't do anything, and the little light just keeps flashing. Sometimes the drive sounds like it keeps trying to find the CD, but it's not successful. I've tried a few different CDs and it keeps happening, but it worked once after a few tries with one of the CDs. Is this a sign of death for my burner, or is it likely something fixable is wrong with it?
