Hi all. I just upgraded to the 8525B from my 8400B, and I am having a slight problem. I cannot read all the Memorex CDRs I burned with my 8400B in this new drive! I tried the same CDRs on a friends computer, and they worked great. Borrowed a Memorex CDR that he burned, just in case it was an error with my 8400B, but they will not read in the 8525B either. BUT here is the kicker, I can BURN to the same type blank Memorex CDR discs with the 8525B, and they will play in all drives.
I noticed on the CDR Labs review that the 52X24X52 LG had very high media requirements, I was thinking this might have something to do with it. Also I should point out, that at first I thought this was an error with the new drive, so I exchanged it for a new one, and had the exact same results.
