I need to determine whether my drive is going bad or if I have several bad ISO's.
I get unrecovered read errors, cyclic redundancy errors and catastophic failures on several ISO's i've burned. I have used Nero6 and Roxio6 and both burns give errors.
My drive is a Lite-On 48x CDRW.

Any help would be appreciated.

You could try mounting the ISO's using an an app like Alcohol120%, or DaemonTools
If they work fine running through software, then chances are it's the drive or the discs

You could also try burning them using the virtual recorder in Nero as recorder. The concept may sound a bit silly (burning iso to iso) but I guess it will give some indication if the iso is ok or not.

Check the lite-on site. There was a recent firmware that really messed up some drives.

If the site you got the ISO from provides an MD5 code, you could also run an MD5 check on the ISO file to verify it's integrity.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I mounted the ISO's in nero image drive and they all worked perfectly. So either my drive needs a good cleaning, firmware update or a replacement :(

Thanks for all the help.
