Ok so I have an older dvd burner it is the Sony dru 500a the first dual format burner.
I have been making backups of my dvd’s with no problem for a while. Other than the changing of software to bypass protection.
But now since about a week ago i started to have a problem, My drive does not recognize a original DVD. It will read cd’s and previously backed up copies without problem.
But I have put in my copy of Curious George to back up for my daughter and it wont read the disk. Never recognizes the disk. Disk activity light stays on for a while and so does my hdd light but nothing happens. I should mention I have tried several other new dvd’s with no luck.
If i open windvd it will take forever but recognizes the disk but does not play it. It just freezes up.
