Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Bad dvd blank discs (sony brand)

\015 I am unlucky when buying dvd blanks. One or two out of a 30 pack spindle will work. Is there any solution to this problem? Is my dvd burner on my laptop dirty and needs cleaning? I find it hard to believe that out 3 30 pk spindles of blank dvd'ds, only five in all worked. Need help, can someone give me feedback on this problem thanks.\015

Answers :

You have hit on one of the primary suspects, a dirty DVD drive. But usually your would notice skipping or hesitation when playing DVDs and possibly CDs as well. Still, never hurts to run a cleaner. I use the Scotch brand DVD/CD cleaner disk that needs no liquid but rather has the brushes. I got it at CompUSA for about $10.

\015\012You may also be experiencing a bad batch of disks if all the spindles are the same brand bought at the same time. It might also be an incompatibility between your DVD burner and the disk manufacturer. Try buying a small 5 pack of a different brand from some other place and see if your have better results.
