    CD-RW Disks Eventually Die

    I use my burner to transfer files by burning what I need onto a CD-RW, taking it to someone's computer, erase the CD-RW, repeat. I have found this to be a great way to transfer large files to other PCs. The old way of carrying my parallel zip drive around really sucked! I'm finding that after about 5-10 burns on a CD-RW it's history. Does this make sense? Also, does anyone have any brand recommendations for good CD-RW disks.

    That should not be happening. You must have really poor cdrws.

    CDRW's do wear out, but you should be getting between 100 and 200 full burns out of each one. Some time ago I read about new ones that would do over 1000 burns before dying. Anyhow, I agree with aug1516, you must have been using poor quality disks.
