Hardware.
I really hate it.
The allegedly writeable plastic disc has caused me more grief, stress, tears and wasted days that almost anything else I can think to name.
I hate the fact that the "eject" button next to the drive is a pitiful plea rather than a COMMAND.
When I press eject I want the disc to be ejected, NOT MATTER what any piece of software somewhere, or the hardware, thinks should happen, Eject. No ifs not buts, no checking of data is treaming ing. Disc Out Now.
I hate the fact that the drivers mollicoddle hardware. I also blame electronics engineers for this and other stress in my life when I wrote device drivers.

Machine Obeys Human. It seems little to ask.

Not unrelated, could anyone recommend software for composinging a small number of MPG files onto a DVD to play on a domestic player.
And or a reliable external USB DVD writer that JUST DOES IT'S JOB!!!!!!!!????
