    or is my drive broken?

    sometimes trying a different brand of discs helps.

    Does your roommate use the same computer? Some DVD drives do not like certain dvd's. I've always used verbatim and have had no problems.

    Well... you can't keep doing the same thing and expect different results, right?

    Why don't you just buy a couple of RW's? Tinker with various speeds and scenarios until you determine whether it's the drive.

    unfortunately, finding the best DVD-R is more of a "sample until you find what works". don't invest in a spindle unless you've tried a few of each and know what works, and what doesn't.
