Dvd burner malfunctioning after failed burn

#1

I have been burning DVD’s for quite some time now and have had great success in doing so… I had been averaging encoding using shrink at around 4000 kb/s and i could burn the dvd in just about 8 minutes… I have a very fast computer…

The problem however is that i recently attempted to burn a dvd, and during the encoding process, it halted at 43%. No error was posted, it just completely stopped at 43%. After the incident, every DVD that i attempt to burn only encodes at 1400 kb/s a drastic drop from 4000 kb/s. The burn also takes quite a bit longer… I am wondering what could possibly have caused this problem and what i can do to fix it… Any help would be great… Thankyou guys very much…

I also notice that when a video is played through the drive it catches at points which previously did not happen… I really do not understand what the hell happened… All i was doing was encoding a movie and now its crapped out…
