    First I had a problem with buffer underruns in easy cd creator. So I switched to Nero. Nero worked great for a while. Now it gets underruns too. The only way for me to burn a cd is to make an image and then burn that. That works fine but is a pain in the a**. Think my burner is dying? Its an LG 8120B. I have burned approx 1000 cd's with it.

    Try closing as many apps as you can and leave it alone to burn. Not the way it is suppose to work but.....it might.

    depends on how tired of it u r.

    me I'd get me another burner, one with burn proof technology, never had one error with mine, burnt at least 300 cd's so far without any errors.

    I ain't saying u ought to buy a plextor, there are other good ones too, but would not consider any cd burner without it.

    I think I'm gonna go give my credit card a workout. I'm getting sick of taking 30 min to get a good burn. Any suggestion?
    I was thinking a TDk 40x or maybe a Benq (Acer)

    I'd love a plextor, just can't spend the $$$ on it

    i would get an i/o magic. mine was super cheap (110 cdn) . It burns at 24x and ive never had a problem with it ~150 cds and counting. i would take the leftover money and buy a decent vid card. CYA

    You definitly need to get a Lite On.. sounds like a cheap brand but look at all the reviews.. it reads everything, writes everything, is dependible, NEVER gets buffer underruns (has buffer underrun prevention), and is cheap.. i have the 32x12x40 and have it for a month and i love every moment of it.. i upgraded to this from a TDK 16x10x40.. I liked my TDK but it broke on me once and i had to get it replaced. But there is my 2 cents.. get the Lite On.. Cheap - Stable - Copies all - Awesome
