    Meaning they don't have to be an expensive brand name to work well.

    If you're looking at Best Buy... Buslink, Memorex and TDK use rebadged Lite-On drives. Your best bet is to buy a Buslink drive as these are always Lite-On drives and they are often cheaper than the rest.

    agw_01,

    Might be a little off topic, but does burning 702 MB on a 700MB disk cause problems?

    I had 2 CD's out of 20 or so, that burn good but when I tried opening the last two pictures on each CD they did not open or could not copy even though the file was there. I noticed that these two CD's where maxed out in terms of space.

    Does this sound reasonable?

    Thanks

    Sorry it took me so long to reply.

    Anyway, in answer to your question I have had no problems at all when overburning a 700mb CD. I did, however, have a problem when trying to burn 655mb onto a 650mb CD. Over time, the disc just took longer to access. I use Nero 6, which allows me to set overburn options. I just left them to the defaults... 82 minutes I think which seems to work well. Overburn will only work when doing a disc-at-once burn, as you probably know. What media do you use? Maybe the discs that had read errors didn't like being overburned, while better quality discs give more flexibility (couldn't think of the right word there).
