I will work on not shortening words.

Thanks! Certainly do so when trying to communicate in a technical forum and/or when in need of help. In those situations accuracy and clarity are absolutely paramount. Take it from someone who has dealt with a significant number of technically confused and confusing people over the years… :slight_smile:

It’s funny, this disc has been used 2x. And there is a definate
scratch.

There you go. I doubt the scratch happened while it was inside your machine. It is much, much more likely to be due to some external event. CDs are relatively delicate things (quite unlike how they were originally billed!) so you have to be careful. Especially if they contain important data.

See whether the repair center can burn two copies without hitting you for too much cash. Just in case. And always keep them in proper plastic cases, never let them kick around loose on a desk or in a bag.

One often misunderstood thing is many people I know think the label
side is the side to protect, no it is the bottom that needs to be
protected.

Not saying this is the case here just adding this comment.
