    hey all, I had some recent issues with burning especially with vcds. I think my burner might be going. Is there any diagnostics or tests I can perform to see if this is the case? . . .ie burn something to cd then assess the results in some specialized program??

    I've been using roxio . . .I know . . .I know, but it has been working fine in the past. Usually the problems stem from some other sources ( ie dying drive, or disk defrag etc . . )

    But which is the best program for assessing how the burner itself is performing? and able to burn vcds with the best results?

    I attempted to run some tests got error code(31100).

    I do not know what any of the tests mean . . . is there a guide on how to use the program, telling what each test means?
