i have an artec 12x dvd+/-RW drive and when after i installed it, it will
burn info to the cds and dvds most of the time without failing. however when
i later go back to read the information from them on any drive in any of my
computers i can't retrieve the info. most of the time it won't even burn cds
using windows xp built in burning. i also use Nero 6 and that is the only
efficient way for me to write through this drive. what can i do to fix this
problem?

both the cds, which are "Great Quality", and the dvds are 8x maxell dvd-r,
don't work all the time. i have also used 48x philips brand cds, which the
burner also had problems with, so i don't think that it's the brand.
