Hello fellows geeks . I want to ask you all a really big question.
My friend have a laptop which DVD-RW started having problems.
The problem is DVD one day after years of use just stopped burning disk while it still reads them properly.
The laptop is old - maybe 5 years old , using some Philips dvd-rw ( cant remember model ID ) we tryed al custom software (Nero , reinstall linux , Linux live CD … ) but it just didnt start burning . And simulation run properly . So looks like its not a software problem . I even installed new firmware to DVD.
So where may the problem hide ? Dirty laser lens ( but wouldnt read then , right? ) Laser just got "aged " , meaning its power isnt enough to burn or what ?
Thanks for response
