7200A strange behavior

[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-7200A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I was just checking some older discs and with one of them a verbatim CD-RW 24x my drive seems to refuse to do anything.
The tray closes the drive light goes on but it never spins up or seem to do anything else.
Had no problem with the drive and the CD looks very good.

Any clue what the error could be?

I can’t even erase it because Nero can’t get access to the disc.

Hi,

this problem occurs only with that certain disc?
Then this disc is probably defective. I wouldn’t blame the drive for being on strike here :slight_smile:

Yes only with that disc.
It just seems strange as the disc looks better then others that worked without a problem.
Can it be that the disc is just “rotten”?
