  1. Thanks for the tip to try to clean my drive. It never looked dirty like I know my fan gets so I never considered it, but I looked into it and found that you can clean it with a compressed air can and then a Q-tip dabbed in rubbing alcohol. I did all that and re-installed those uninstalled programs and everything's working great. I don't know which did the trick, but the lens probably was dirty as I've been getting back some rather dirty discs. I looked into how clean those too now so I should be good to go for awhile. Thanks again for the help!
  2. Thanks. I have successfully used a number of discs from this spindle already. I've got 90+ left so I'm not just going to throw them out. I'll try reinstalling those programs I uninstalled. I'd love to hear any other ideas.
  3. I was successfully able to burn DVDs before, but the last 2 have died on me. I was even able to burn this project to a DVD-RW first to test it as I always do and it went fine. The first time it failed it got stuck on Writing Leadin and my laptop was making an awful noise for a long long time (over an hour?). I tried turning it off and it said it was synchronizing and said to be patient, but it again wouldn't stop for a long time so I finally shutdown the computer. I restarted and tried again and this is what I got: I 09:56:05 ImgBurn Version started! I 09:56:05 Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition (6.0, Build 6001 : Service Pack 1) I 09:56:05 Total Physical Memory: 1,037,700 KB - Available: 234,784 KB I 09:56:05 Initialising SPTI...
