Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

To be sure that is not a hardware failure of your burners, the easiest way is to install these drives on another computer. If drives works correctly on another computer, then is something in your windows installation that create problems. Maybe re-install anything again can solve.

Seeing as you JUST reinstalled windows, I would guess it’s likely a driver issue. Possibly your aspii driver/version. Try removing the devices completely, including the ide’s in hardware manager, and then reboot and allow windows to redetect the devices.

I vote for updating drivers especially with two burners goning out. I recently updated drivers and clicked to allow Windows to search the internet for the most recent ones. Worth a try.
