    Get Mitsubishi. I use them for everything, let me know if you want me to help you get them, but you have to self-collect from me

    I only use the cheapo ones when I'm intending to give them away. But then, I don't get that many coasters are you do.

    Your Mac should be burning them fine? I can burn off my Mac and PeeCee.

    Either that your drive is going bonkers, or get a PLEXTOR.

    burn at lower speed if you need to burn tonight
    or if all else fails, go mustafa and buy some branded discs

    I use Verbatim (same as Mitsubishi)

    Have you tried try to burn it at the possible slowest speed?
    It might help?

    It may have been your burner, if you can try another or try burning from another PC.
