RE: Your answer concerning blank CD quality...

Another problem experienced by many people who have bought the cheap, low quality CDs is stress cracks that develop near the hub of the disc. The cheaper, thinner CD blanks seem to be much more prone to stress cracks which can cause a catestrophic failure of the CD inside the drive.

This can get expensive, if a CD fails inside the drive it literally shatters into dozens or hundreds of small pieces, destroying itself and the drive.

Also the CD pieces which are very sharp can come flying out of the CDRom which happened to me But mine was a Windows 98 CD.
