[QUOTE=rooneyjrd;2466764]when I load a disc I get a format or corrupt data error[/QUOTE]
Can you give us more details? What is the specific brand and model of the product you are referring to? Is it a player-only, recorder, or a combination of things?
What kind of discs are you trying to load? Blank ones, or those that already have recorded information?
