Hello all, nice community you have here
I’ll go straight into my problem:
As the title says, I have a few months old ASUS DRW-1608P2 (FW 1.37, pristine lenses) that suddenly stopped recognizing written DVDs. And just them.
It still writes blank DVDs (+/-R) and CDs, and it reads with no problem CDs, CDRWs and DVDRWs. But since most of my work is backed up on former blank DVDs - the one media it won’t read - you can imagine my frustration.
Few computer HW & SW specs:
P III/ 1GHz
1 GB RAM
160 GB HDD
Win XP SP2
AV & firewall installed since forever
Except for Nero, all software (including drivers) is up to date.
And I already checked Nero, it was/is not the problem.
Before this weirdness striked, I’ve made no changes to my machine, be it software or hardware, so I don’t think there’s anything to backtrack.
Can any of you guys kindly assist me in restoring the functionality of this writer?
I’m far from being a noob, but this issue seems to be owning me…
Thanks in advance!
