problem with burning failures cheap media your recording onto. I don't have a preferred brand because almost all the brands I've used have had at least one copy that failed.
I just spent hours trying everything I could find to fix my dvd/cd rw drive. The problem is when I burn a cd, using any media player, it says the disc is burned but then when put into any cd player, will show it's playing but there is no sound. Or it will play for a 20 or 30 seconds, then quit. I tried iTunes, Windows Media, and RealPlayer. Also, when I try to play a cd or dvd, the sound is broken and choppy. I've tried running a lens cleaner, making sure drivers are updated, looked in the registry for upper and lower filters (there weren't any), and everything else I have found to try. The drive is pretty new. It worked at first, but not for long. Any suggestions?
