DVD Rer-Writer on the way out?

  mgblugs 11:40 15 Jan 2007

When my mate burns .wav files to a cd-r they always skip/jump during playback. He's tried cranking the write speed down but to no avail. would his DVD re-writer be on it's last legs?

Might be on the CD laser side.

a while ago i had a similar problem with my pioner dvdrw drive it whould bur to disc ok but on play back it would jump and the adio would stutter someone recomender going to the manufacturs site to see if there was a flash update to drive there was flashed drive never had a problem since.
if he thinks drive is on the way out might be worth a go if he does try this option tell him to follow the instructions to the letter on flashing a drive if he does it wrong it will kill drive

He's tried playing them on his stereo in the car and in the house.

I never thought about an update though, I'll have to give it a try.
