Okay, watched part two of The Lost Room today. Just as good as part one. I'm kinda glad it's only a mini-series though, otherwise it would get tedious.
Today is not a good day for electronics. First, the dvd player locks up; I can't do anything with it, not even shut off the power. I guess it decided to shut itself off after awhile, cuz I just left it and when I came back it was off. Second, wasn't able to get the enclosure for my new HD today, as there was no transportation available during business hours. :( Third, the cd writers on Elaine's computer are acting up. The top one demands that the cd be finalised (which is a no go as I am using CD-RWs) and the second one won't recognise the CD-RW. Argh. Fourth, Ed is having trouble with the wi-fi again. Hooray. So, I pretty much wasted my night trying to transfer files. *sigh*
As for the 50 Book Challenge, I have finished my first book of the year this evening. w00t!
Not much else got done today. Oh, I put away laundry. Go me!

The CD thing is likely trivial. The software would be at fault for requesting the CD to be finalized and it's likely because you burning a Red book (audio) cd. Also, CD-RWs can be finalized. Electronics sucks though, where's the quality these days?

Not burning Red book. Just moving files off a dvd onto a cd-rw so I can watch them on my lappy.

What I meant was that I didn't want them finalised. (What's the point of re-write if you can't re-write?)

The point is you can erase it and start again. There's gotta be something funky with it though... make sure you have "mutlisession" selected or enabled.

Nero is probably set to "disc-at-once" mode. It was last time I used that particular computer.

Finalise is only talking about closing the last session on the CD. You can (and should) finalise CD-RWs unless there's a very good reason not to (e.g. you'll be adding more files to the disc later).

You can format and reuse a CD-RW even if it's finalised.

My cd burner won't burn anymore. This computer is going to hell. I wouldn't be surprised if the place we bought it from did something to it for it to fuck up after a year. Shoddy car places do that shit. *frustrated*

Cheap hardware doesn't usually last that long, so it would be consistent with them ripping you off. :(
