    hi all.

    Wonder if some one can clue me in to why these princo dvd-rw discs seem to fail after the 4th burn.Tried putting data on them ,that seems to work but after the 4th time off erasing them my computer cant seem to locate them in the drive or i cant access the data.

    i did look for threads on this prob, the best i could get was

    quote:Has anyone ever had a problem using the optorite drive to record to princo dvd-rw media? What's happening with me is that everytime I put in a blank dvd-rw, my pc freezes; as soon as I eject it, everything works again. The princo dvd-rw media is 1x I believe, I'm using Nero 6 Ultra edition


    unfortunately that particular question was never answered.
    I am using nero 6
    amd 2600+
    GForce 4
    etc etc etc


    thanks inadvance

    well, i've had bad experiences with princo, and so have other people on this forum. I say just try another brand rw and see if the same problem occurs.
