Do you guys know if external cases or the drives themselves go bad very often/easily? I have both my 3500 and Lite-on 832S in Bytecc External USB2.0 cases.
And lately, the results of my burns have varied greatly from the burns i made when i got the drive 3-4 months ago.
My RICOHJPNR01 burns used to be really good, but the quality has decreased lately. I just got some TYT02 media from Rima.com, and the results of my burns never looked like the burns most of you guys get with TY media. So thinking maybe i got a bad batch, i got some Fuji TY media. My first 2 burns are below. This can't be normal, especially with TY media. Also, i just burned a Verbatim 16X MCC004 disc, and the results were decent, but noticeably worse then they used to burn.
