Snap krupted I love mine!
I recently burnt some compliation CD's for a mate, and when the burn had completed and the disc was ejected from the drive... he looked so shocked I burst out laughing. Burning at 52x doesn't seem that fast to me anymore, because I'm used to it, but I guess my friends are all used to their store-bought, 3+ year old machines with 8x writers, hehehe.
I've noticed a number of errors on audio CD's however, which I've burnt when MSN Messenger has been running. If I close MSN and burn the same CD, I get no problems during playback. Have you had any similar problems?
