Lately, my internal CD writer that came with my computer has not been burning from my harddrive the way it use to. It use to burn at the fastest speed without any problems, but now I get error messages whenever I try to burn a CD. So I slowed the burn speed down to the medium speed and then the slowest, and it works occasionally.
Someone told me that my writer could need replacing because it's about 4 years old. Ideally, I'd like to go ahead and replace it with a CD and DVD writer. Is 4 years about the correct lifespan for a CD writer?
