I'm having a burner problem, HELP!!!!
my DVD burner is having a lot of trouble burning data DVD+R's. I am trying to be in the presence of backing my CD collection up on DVD+R's to save space (as I have over 1000 cd's), since my CD-ROM collection, which I originally backed them on, has become disorganized and all over the place. However, using Nero, I am having a 9/1 failure ratio. Most of the time, the DVD finishes successfully, but when I transfer the files onto my other computer to make sure it's working, I keep getting "cyclic redundancy errors". How do I go about avoiding getting these errors? I know blank DVD's are so much cheaper than they used to be, but still, I don't buy a 50 pack so I'll have 40 coasters.

Can someone help me? I am totally at wits end I have heard about External Hard Drives, but hearing the crash ratio on those and the fact I'm currently on a budget, I don't forsee getting one anytime soon. Can someone help me stop having dud discs?

What brand did you buy?

And perhaps the reader on your other PC is not so good?

copy the data over a network connection

which brand of DVD's do you have and what are the dvd drives in each PC?
