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.

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
