1300A Problems

My burner has been working fine for about 2 months now all of a sudden it wont read dvds at all not even orignal dvds but it will read and burn regular cd-r. i have 1.0a firmware installed. I have restarted the system. Reflashed. and unhooked the drive and tried in another system. Samething happens. Is my drive half dead?

My ND1300a suffered the same fate after about six weeks of use. The only thing that changed during that time was that I flashed the firmware to 10A from 1.08 a week before it died. (it did write one +RW with the new firmware)
I returned the drive and it was replaced under warranty. So far no problems with the new drive but I haven’t had the courage to flash it to the latest firmware yet just in case that was the problem!
