I think that it is no media problem, because i already tested a big variety of discs (Sony, HP, Fujifilm, Tevion, Phillips…). I also cleaned the lens with a lens cleaner CD. The main problem is, when I am burning a DVD the burning software( Nero, freeBurnerXP, the Windows ISO burning dialogue) shows that it is burning it, and has succesfully finished, but checking Data on the DVD it is still empty and can be burned with my other drive.
Searching the web for some infos, I read that this is a firmware problem of this drive that many other manufacturer could solve with an updated firmware, but asus as you all may know is not very fast and up-to-date with new drivers, firmware and support.
My warranty is over this month, so that is no big problem for me and as the drive is not burning, I always have to connect my external drive, so the drive is very useless not working.
I tried the Infotool bundeled with my Nero version (7.9) but it doesn’t show if the drive is master or slave, after that I tried the Infotool 4.03 but it doesn’t show anything on the configurations tab (I’m using win7 RTM).
Am I doing something wrong? How may I else find out if the drive is master or slave?
