Can't burn any DVDs with a 1693S

I’m at my wits end trying to burn any DVDs successfully with a 1693S. I’ve tried DVD-R, DVD+R and DVD+RW, all with no success. I updated the drive firmware a couple of days ago to the latest available, and Nero is up to date too. Both Nero and Ashampoo seem to have similar symptoms, they take ages in the lead in and lead out sections, and say that they’ve written the disc successfully, but when I insert it back in to the drive, grinding sounds and no read. Tried it in another DVD reader at work, and they couldn’t read it either. I’ve also slowed the recording speeds down, which didn’t make any difference. Any ideas? It burns CDs beautifully though, for some weird reason…

bump No one has any clues? Or questions? I’d really rather not buy a new burner just because my current one has some weird glitch…
