[qanda]This thread is about the Plextor PX-760A/T3KB. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have successfully burned many CD, SL DVD and DL DVD the last couple of years, using the same software and hardware, with no problems at all. I still have no problems burning a CD or SL DVD. Recently I got a “focus, tracking error” as well as a “power calibration error” while burning a Verbatim DL DVD+R disc. I removed my DVD burner and took it apart and cleaned the lens very carefully. After reinstallation I successfully burned a movie on DL DVD+R disc. But I was unable to burn several episodes of my favorite TV show on a DL DVD+R disc. When I say unable to burn, what I mean is the episodes burned but the disc wouldn’t play in my laptop, PC or Stand alone DVD player. As a matter of fact it locked up the PC. So I tried again at a slower burn speed and this time it would play but it the audio was slurred and the video was slow moving. So in conclusion it burns a single file just fine but when it comes to multiple files, no go. I also reinstalled my burning software just in case and it didn’t help. My question is as follows: Is my DVD burner just plain failing or did I damage something during the lens cleaning process (I am very hardware savvy and was extremely careful), or is this a software issue. A couple of side notes: After reinstalling the DVD burner, whenever I put in any DVD it takes a really long time to access it. When I say long time, I mean like 90 seconds or more. After reinstalling Nero, the DVD doesn’t automatically eject after burning is complete.
My specs are as follows:
Windows XP Pro SP3
Nero 7.5.9 Ultra, I use Nero Vision 4 to burn with.
I very much appreciate any and all thoughts or suggestions on my issue.
