  1. As kevdriver said, it might be time for a new drive. At least that's the way i would go. Do a search on the forum and I'm sure you will find a number of drives that we have said are good ones. Good luck.
  2. same here although I've burned a couple of spindles of Yudens and they're excellent the Verbs are easier to find locally I was concerned about getting TY fakes and that was my main reason for purchasing Verbs but now I'm glad I did. They are much more plentiful, cheaper and I haven't heard about any fake ones. Hopefully the quality of the Verbatim discs will continue.
  3. How about letting me do it LUK?? :whistling:

    Happy Birthday Dave. And since it was originally used by me...
  5. Here's hoping your birthday is a great one Bill. And I hope you have many more just as great, if not better.
  6. I must to disagree with esteemed colleague here. I've been using both Sony DVDRs and CDRs and have had only a few coasters (and those have been CDRs). In fact, Sony 8x DVD+Rs (with a purple label) are actually Taiyo Yudens--the absolute best on the market (and the inventers of the CDR). Sony's yellow label -R 8x'ers have also proven to be quite good in my experience. The Sony item number: 25DPR47LS3 These are Yuden000-T02-00s. Muy bitchin' And, with a 96% success rate after 355,000+ burns, here's the proof of how good they are: Verbatims are the only way to go. With well over 1200 (counting both DVD5 and DVD9 discs) burns I have had a success rate greater then 99%. I am not exaggerating. I have had no more than 2 or 3 unsuccessful burns in more than 2 years of burning.
  7. About 2 1/2 years ago I was in a restaurant having dinner. We were in the non-smoking section. A man sitting at the table next to mine decided he was going to smoke and everyone else be damned. He even had the gall to use one of the plates for his ashtray. The smoke was really annoying so I asked him to stop and pointed out to him where he was sitting. He decides to take an attitude and proceeds to yell at me (although everyone in the restaurant could hear) saying things about how he has the right to smoke along with things like we should leave if it bothers us and no one is going to make him stop. The police were called and he decided to take the same route with them. WRONG MOVE IDIOT! They cuffed and arrested him right there. I must say I loved seeing it happen. While they were cuffing him I told him to make sure he didn't forget his cigarettes. One of the police officers who were there looked at me and gave a small laugh. + @ =
  8. We all can now see that you have read the book titled "How to Win Friends and Influence People".
  9. I have no reason to doubt your sincerity so I stand corrected and I apologize for thinking what I did.
  10. I not sure why you did all of that. I get the feeling that you had to try to prove, that the people who tried to help you were wrong. The reason I get that feeling is that even though Verbatim DVD+R DL discs are MUCH, MUCH better than the Verbatim DVD-R DL and they also cost less and you would have done less work to get them to work correctly, you had to search until you found a solution that worked for you. Then when it worked you came back here to tell us we were wrong. It would have been much easier for you just to use the +R DL media.
  11. What you are doing is illegal. No one here is going to help you. I think you need to know that this board is monitored buy several agencies that are looking for people that admit to illegal downloading. These agencies have way to trace you through your IP Address even if you are going through an annomizer. Don't think I am just trying to give you a hard time. I am trying to give you a heads-up.
  12. The owner (or co-owner) of one of the companies I've done work for lost her father in that horrendous attack.
  13. I applaud you for the change Kirk.
  14. "Stewardesses" is the longest word typed with only the left hand and "lollipop" with your right. (Bet you tried this out mentally, didn't you?) Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable. (I'll bet you're going to check this out.) No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple. "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt". (Are you doubting this?) Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing. The sentence: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" uses every letter of the alphabet. (Now, you KNOW you're going to try this out for accuracy, right?) The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes). (Yep, I knew you were going to "do" this one.) There are only four words in the English language which end in "dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. (You're not doubting this, are you?) There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: "abstemious" and "facetious." (Yes, admit it, you are going to say ..... a e i o u) TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard. (All you typists are going to test this out.) All 50 states are listed across the top of the Lincoln Memorial on the back of the $5 bill. A dime has 118 ridges around the edge. A cat has 32 muscles in each ear. A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. (Some days that's about what my memory span is) A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second. A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes. A snail can sleep for three years. (I know some people that could do this too.) Al Capone's business card said he was a used furniture dealer. Almonds are a member of the peach family. An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. Babies are born without kneecaps. They don't appear until the child reaches 2 to 6 years of age. February 1865 is the only month in recorded history not to have a full moon. In the last 4,000 years, no new animals have been domesticated. If the population of China walked past you, 8 abreast, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction. If you are an average American, in your whole life, you will spend an average of 6 months waiting at red lights. Leonardo Da Vinci invented the scissors. On a Canadian two dollar bill, the flag flying over the Parliament building is an American flag. Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite! Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated. The average person's left hand does 56% of the typing. The cruise liner, QE2, moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel that it burns. The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket. (Good thing he did that) The winter of 1932 was so cold that Niagara Falls froze completely solid There are more chickens than people in the world. Winston Churchill was born in a ladies' room during a dance. Women blink nearly twice as much as men.
  15. Let's just say that I know for a fact that he has two middle names...Ray and Charles.
  16. No they're not RW discs. No you haven't wasted them. They are still good for coasters. Don't worry you haven't lost anything. Being Sony discs, they were only good for coasters even before you wrote to them.
  17. Non use (or misuse) has caused them to turn into crystal.
  18. Careful Bill, or I'll be forced to post the "other" picture.
  19. Meanwhile, back on the ranch, aunt Martha, after reading this, says
