Thanks for the help- I used compressed air to clean the drive out, removed the IDE channel through the device manager, and removed the lower filter (there was no upper filter listed) in the registry. I then downloaded and installed the latest version of ImgBurn, and attempted to burn a disc. It seemed to work OK until it got to finalizing the disc. Then it went into verifying the disc, and just seemed to wait for the drive to become ready for a long time.
After about 7 or 8 minutes of waiting I canceled the operation. The disc it burned isn’t being recognized by the drive, or in my other computer. If I look at the disc, I can see that something was burned, because it has the smaller dark ring of purple on the disc that shows up when things burn. The drive does read, however, other discs that I have (data and DVD video as well as audio CDs). Do you have any other troubleshooting steps you can recommend? I’ve copy-pasted the ImgBurn log below in case that’s useful:
