Apologies if this is in the wrong forum but didnt know where else to put it. I've burnt some DVD's and I always have a quick scan of the blank DVD to check it for dust/fingerprints etc. The other day I burnt a DVD and when it came out it had minor scratches on it. Since then I have made a point of really checking my discs as I put them in as I thought I would have seen scratches like that. Well today I put a disc in, burnt the back up and the scratch on it is well I dont know how to describe it, but if you bought the disc from HMV you would take it back!!! This has happened to several different makes of disc, although the most recent one was a "cheapy for x-box back-ups". Could it be the media? I personally doubt this myself. The burner is a Pioneer A06. Is there a cleaner out there for drives? I know you can get tools that "repair" scratches on discs but it seems the problem may be coming from the drive itself...?? I dont know - all replies gratefully welcomed!
