Re: strange DVD drive!
what you might need is not a new drive, but a firmware update for the mew media model number (I think that's what I was told). if no firmware update is available from the optical drive manufacturer, request one and tell them what media make and model number you have.
fingerprints, dust and scratches are things you should avoid. like not laying the disc data side down on a table which usually has scratchy dust on it - sure t get scratches on the data layer form a table - this is why we have. paper is typically more safe, unless it's been laying in the same place for days and has gathered (you guessed it) dust. hold the disc by the edges and as gingerly as you can, because more pressure means more fingerprints I have learned - there is oil in your fingers and hand, and this interferes with the laser's reading of data. if you have scratch problems, the JFJ easy pro $149 should take care of those if you have a high turnover rate.
