Hi there :)
I bought this Acer TravelMate 2700 with a Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S drive in december 2004, and some weeks ago it started creating problems.
when I was burning cd's at 24x, the data verification failed because of several data problems on the cd. I normally lowered the burning velocity to 16x, and some cd's later I had exactly the same problem...So I lowered again the velocity to 10x, which eventually started failing some days later... Now I can only burn cds at 4x, which takes about 26 minutes with written data verification. I already reinstalled Nero, and it keeps always with the same problem... And the cd's I use are Verbatim, exactly the ones i used on the first 5 months without no problems...
Drivers problems?
Memory problems?
I have a big problem here...

Can you help me?
:confused: :confused: :confused:

What can anyone say?

If the CD's are failing on data verisfication, it suggests that they are marginal as to their being written correctly

Has all the indications of a failing laser in the drive (low output) but you should try another brand of CD before jumping to conclusions.

I agree it sounds like you have a failing drive. If you bought it 7 months ago, it is probably still under warranty.
