I don't burn many DVDs but when I need one, I need it right away. I burn more CD-Rs than anything else almost on a weekly basis.
I went to burn 2 copies of picture files I was presented by first a "focus or tracking error" and then a "track following error". I tried using different media and also lowering the write speed to no avail. I also switched to a different drive and also reinstalled Nero to no avail. The unit will burn a CD all day long without any problem. Also, I only use well known brands of media but not the super expensive gold ones.
I am wondering is the problem fixable or is this fairly new (maybe 1.5 years old) 8X DVD burner now toast? Wth DVD burners being so cheap, unless my problem isn't the burner, I'd be tempted to just replace the unit for a 16X one.
