Re: Can No Longer Read DVD/CD's

Thanks for all the suggestions/responses.

I have come to the conclusion it is bad media. I tried many of them on 5 different players now.

A program claims the DVD's and CD's are RAW type files on them.
Not sure how that happened. They were anything but that type of file.

The majority of them were Maxell type media, so I will never buy them again!

I also noticed the bad ones were thinner than the other DVD's I have which still are working after the same amt. of time.

I sure have a change of mind when it comes to DVD's and CD's now.
I don't see why they don't last forever if a good burner is used.
I guess this technology has quite a ways to go. Makes me wonder why even bother if they claim not to last more then 8 to 10 years anyway.
I have cassette tapes (personal music recordings), from back in the 70's that still play and sound good.

Unfortunately, with various qualities of organic dyes and adhesives used in recordable disc manufacturing, it can be hit or miss with long-term reliability. I've thought about picking up a burner with this technology and giving it a shot. Looks interesting at least.
