burning error code 0xeb020b9c by Robert A Ely
Is this a Vista glitch and if so how can I fix it? While copying a data dvd or even a data cd I get this error code. I have used the same brand of DVD or CDs before when I had Windows XP with no problems. Using Cyberlink Power2Go no help from their techs.
