I just purchased a new computer a couple of weeks ago but I have some files that I would like to transfer from my old computer to my newly purchased computer. However, I am having great difficulty in acheiving this goal. Both my CD-and-DVD-ROM drives are exibiting the same problem. They'll each start burning information onto the disk and then, for no apparent reason, they'll quit and seem to get stuck on a file (regardless of what kind of file it is or how big it could be)and....that's it. They'll simply stop doing their job. Originally, I thought this problem was isolated to my cd-rom drive because, several nights ago, I sucessfully burned some information to a dvd-ram disk without any problems whatsoever. Then, about 2 days ago, my dvd-rom started to act like my cd-rom and just up and quit. I've tried several different disk (including DVD-R's, DVD-RAM's, CD-R's and CD-RW's) all to no avail...except for the 1 dvd-ram disk from about 4 nights ago. I've tried several different -RAM disk since then but my burning problem still remains. Would someone please help me before I lose my freaking mind? BTW, I edited my message to simply say "thanks in advance".
