I have a nice collection of coasters. I have tried all of the info out there for rip and burn. rip fine burn supposedly fine. DVD +r will not read on either my burner (compatable with all +/-r/rw, thats why I bought it) fully hardware checked and software/driver checked, and will not read in my home DVD unit. Media is HP 8x DVD +r, you would think that this would be good media, let me know if I'm wrong. I used decoder and followed all instructions. All indications say that burn successful. Same with Nero 6. End of my rope. Only can drink so many beers, I have too many coasters.
