Should I get a new DVD burner?

  1. I've been using my stock DVD burner for 3 years now and I burn a lot of data DVDs. A few weeks ago, Nero 8 kept giving me a burn process fail errors. I got a new DVD burning software after that and it worked for 1 month. Then it kept spitting out corrupted data DVDs and so I got another software called Burn4Free yesterday. Then the same thing happened today and it kept giving me corrupted DVDs. Is my DVD burner getting too old or is it something else? Did this similar thing happened to you, too?

    Edit: I know this is a hardware forum but can you guys recommend me a good DVD data burning software? I've used Nero 8, CDBurnerXP, and Burn4Free and they give me corrupted disks.

    Odds are, your optical drive is on it's way out the door...

    Darn, I guess I'll just have to buy a new one. I didn't want to add anymore parts to my aging computer but I guess I have no choice...
