Ok I don’t know if my drive is dying or what is wrong but I’m having some issues recently.
For the past 7+ discs I’ve tried to burn the disc hangs at 100%. Using CloneDVD it sticks on the Flushing Borders end of the burn , I’ve tried Recode2 and also just ripping the movie into an .iso or all .vob files and that and burning with Nero but it doesn’t work either , gives me coasters.
I’ve reset the EEPROM flashed back to VS0G firmware then back to C5G5 and still won’t burn anything now.
I really didn’t pay attention before this happened but lately I’ve been keeping an eye on the led and it changes to orange a couple times during the burn which I thought was buffer underruns but I’m not sure. I do have DMA enabled and everything has burnt fine up until now
The media I’ve burnt over 40 without problems until now. I also have another 832S drive in another computer and just to make sure it wasn’t somehow the media I burnt on that drive as well and did it without any problems. Only difference was I used DVDShrink but I don’t see how that would be any different since nero burns it.
My guess is that my drive is dying but maybe someone knows why it might be doing this and could suggest some things otherwise I’ll probably have to get a new NEC or something.
