For four years, I used two Pioneer DVR-115DBK DVD combo burners with a variety of different-branded blank media (HP, Philips, TDK, Memorex, Maxell, Imation) and never had a problem when the discs needed to be read in other machines.
The Pioneers got fried by a dying power supply, so I replaced them with two Asus DRW-24B1ST burners. Now when I burn CD-Rs from the same spindles of blank CD-Rs as before, my home stereo Marantz CD player has playback problems: sometimes it won't see the TOC and will return an error message, sometimes it will stop playing, sometimes it will skip entire tracks. The Marantz player's laser is new as of spring 2011. It will play CD-Rs made from the same spindles that were burnt with the Pioneer burners just fine.
It's as if both Asus burners are weak or underpowered when burning CD-Rs.
Any advice here? Much appreciated.
