    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I’ve noticed that CDs burned from computers don’t last nearly as long as “factory” CDs. They seem to be prone to hanging, “picket fencing,” difficulty searching and other anomalies. I’ve had some given to me by friends that would start acting up the second time I played it! So, what’s the...
