Buffer Staying At Zero (Plextor Internal E-IDE CD-R & DVD±R Recorder 16X DVD Burning 4X DVD+R DL)

#1

[qanda]This thread is about the Plextor PX-716A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I haven’t burned a DVD in awhile, and I recently went to do so. However, the buffer remained at zero. I decided to go update my drivers, but it didn’t help. I don’t have a lot of experience trouble shooting dvd burners, as I have never encountered a problem. I was using Nero and my OS is XP. Any help is greatly appreciated. BTW, it does still read discs.

Here is the Error Log:

I see you get Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR)
It’s the media, your using Ritek F16
Riteks are known around here for not being very good consistency wise, so usually trying a different disc made by a different company will fix it!
