I have come to the conclusion that my DVD/CD burner can no longer read commercially pressed CDs. Burned CDs seem to work, but not pressed CDs. DVDs of both varieties also seem to work. I did send the computer in for repairs a month ago. However, after finally receiving it three weeks later they told me they could find nothing wrong with the Drive. Brilliant. I just tested 7 Pressed CDs, 6 of which are brand new. And guess what? 100% failure rate.
Now I have to find another month to go without my computer, or spend $100 on a temporary solution.
I bought an Apple Mighty Mouse a few days ago.
It seems very nice, I especially like the scroll ball, it is very intuitive. The right click is a bit strange in that you can’t touch the left side of the mouse while attempting to right click.
Aside from that one small quirk it’s an excellent mouse.
