My grandparents' new CD burner is a brand new, Mad Dog "Dominator" 56X combo writer. I think it's rather silly, actually, because even if my Plextor is a little outdated, it still is a lot more durable. This poor thing needs to be coaxed to notice that a new blank CD-R has been inserted. It doesn't like to do it on its own.
Now it could be the computer itself, which seems to have some trouble multitasking. I'm not used to the sorts of lags that I am experiencing right now.
This computer is not a happy camper.
Here we go again. I'm going to have to convince it that there is, in fact, a perfectly writable CD-R in there...
