CD and DVD write fails
My laptop has an integrated DVD+/-RW drive. I have lots of trouble burning CDs and DVDs making distro and archive data media. Can someone please help me discover what is going wrong?
I download an ISO of some distro image. Open the download folder and double-click to lauch my favorite burn tool -- usually Brasero but I'm starting to like K3B. When the software first touches the media, I get errors that the media is not blank or has out-of-box errors. I've tried waiting for software to ask for media and having media in place when I launch the tool. Yes, the media is blank, unwritten, brand new from the box. (Okay, it is not a box but a tube of media so I know there will be a few which are zorch OoB. However, I'm seeing 20% trouble rate.)
