[QUOTE=smudgebucket;2011252]The information on the computer itself says that the burner is a Lightscribe. The computer is a HP a1320n I can find no further info on the burners model. It is about 2 years old and yes, it has been heavily used.
Thanks for respondind. Do you think a new burner is in order?[/QUOTE]
Hmmm… must be an HP OEM version.
Sounds as if it might be on the way out but I’d be reluctant to recommend buying a new drive unless we’re certain that’s what’s wrong.
I’d like to find out if the drive is designed to vary the write strategy during burns as it seems that that might be where the problem lies. To do that though we need to identify the exact model.
Does Nero Info Tool give any more information, firmware version etc.?
