My System Specs

Default

I use the builtin feature often enough as well and rarely have issues unless I try to burn a disc too fast. I've always had the habbit of lowering my burn speed and never have problems. If I burn a DVD I burn it at 4x or whatever the lowest speed the media itself will allow. It takes 13 min to fill a DVD, hardly a deal breaker when it gives me time to walk away, grab a coffee and go for a smoke

I have an external samsung DVD burner as well, and it never fails me

the media makes a difference too though, what brand of writable discs are you using? some brands work better with some drives then others, and sometimes it's a matter of experimenting to find the best combo. used to be true in the early days, and I find it's still true, though nowhere near as bad as it used to be.
