[QUOTE=Clueless in Seattle;2594687]Many thanks, all of you who posted to this thread. I really appreciate all the help you’ve given me.
I returned the 2x-4x CD-RWs and replaced them with Verbatim 24x CD-RWs which I tried out yesterday and they seem to work fine (My ancient hand-me-down Denon DCD-1590 CD player is unable to read them, but my little Phillips bookshelf stereo does play them).
Now I can do test burns and not feel guilty about contributing to the trashing of our planet when I run into burning problems.
I’ve got lots more questions on a lot of different topics, so, as my health permits, I’m sure you’ll be seeing more posts from me in various forums in the near future.
Thanks again for your generosity in sharing your expertise and time with me, and especially for being so patient with this old duffer,[/QUOTE]
It was no worries, really. Here at Club MyCE, everyone, at least appears, to be friends, and we really do get a kick from helping others! Despite my amount of posts I’ve not been here long, only about a year or so, but others have been here for nearly a decade.
If only I had your ethical attitude to disc burning, I must toss at least 5 discs a month! But I do admire your eco outlook at not wanting to toss discs purely because they are “failures”. Why not go all the way if possible from the optical disc to storing your music library on a big hard drive? The waste in this sense will be far fewer than if you was to catalogue it on a blank disc.
I can’t say I’ve had fantastic experience with -RW, and I guess this is what’s put me off burning as such. But since CD-RW are going cheap, I might pick a few up But, Clueless in Seattle, you’re more than welcome to drop me a message to talk about things - Lord knows I need some friends! Remember, every member on here was once in your position.
Take care, Chad.
