I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? I was playing 'The Cures greatest hits' disk 2 and when it gets to track 17 and 18, it starts to bounce and skip. So I cleaned it, still did it, cleaned the optic the same again, then stuck it in the cd rom drive and it works fine, so has this happened to anyone else, did you find a solution? I will just use cd rom drive to play disks, but I think my dvd writer may be on it's last legs, even though I have used it maybe 10 times to burn disks. What do you think?
