    I bought recently Lightscribe DVD +- Writer/CD - Writer. It just skips when playing disks. It copies them fine and makes perfect backups whenever I need them but it doesn't spend a second without skipping. It came with my computer and the guy at Circuit City said it was good, so what's the deal???

    365kid,
    What is the brand name and model # of the burner? What blank media are you using to copy the DVD's? Is the firmware up to date? This most likely is the blank media that is causing the problem but the other info will help.

    365kid,
    If it skips on reading original and homemade DVDs then you need to take it back as there is a problem w/ that burner. Return it for another brand

    then you need to bite the bullet and pay to replace it. lightscribe is mostly junk, anyway.
