Hi Mack, the type of burner I'm using is an LG and the media is Maxell at the moment. I Haven't any problems with either the burner or the media since the release of Platinum 184.108.40.206.
As for the lights, I didn't notice any lights going on or off because this is my laptop and my burner is on the side. When I ususally insert the media, Windows will recogize the disc first and ask me what I want to do with it. I always click cancel and will click OK to allow DVDFab to continue with the burning part of the process.
I know it's not my burner or my media but the recent change in this new release of Fab that's causing this to happen. Otherwise, why would the operating system recognize that blank media has been inserted into the drive?
What confuses me is that you have to shutdown Fab completely to burn the newly created image in full disc mode.
I bet if I reverted to 220.127.116.11 the problem would go away since I didn't have this untill I upgraded to 18.104.22.168. But When Fengtao came up with this latest beta I figured he'd fixed this problem but he hadn't. I'm sure I'm not the only one this is happening to ~ But I think Fengtao will address this problem sooner or later as other people become aware of it because to me this is a pretty big bug.
