Suddenly I’m having issues with this drive. I’ve always used the same 3 types of media (CD-R) and was able to burn @ 24X. Now I get error messages . I started burning at 16X and occasionally I’d end up with a coaster, now I have to burn at 8X if I’m sure to get a proper disc in the end.
What gives? This has happened over the last couple of days and I can’t figure out the issue. I haven’t dowloaded any new programs (that I’m aware of) and I even tried updating the firmware. The only thing that did was make my Ridata 8X DVD-R’s burn @ 4X instead of 2X. Hooray. Still 4X short. This deck is only 6 months old and really hasn’t caused me much grief in the past. Any ideas?
I use Roxio EZCD 7 & DVD Copy. Is it possible that these programs are corrupt? Or is it the deck? I’m a newbie, but I’d really appreciate any guidance in determining where the problem lies. However, I’m convinced it’s the LG.
NOTE: When using EZCD, it has also started to have episodes where it doesn’t recognize the blank media. Is it a hardware problem or a software problem?
