I’ve just installed a new GSA-H42N drive (patched to RJ11 via MCSE) in my Dell workstation. It is connected with an 80-wire cable and is using UDMA4.
DVD+R media detects and burns without a problem.
However, DVD+R DL media (RITEK-D01), which is listed as being supported on the RITEK website and is a default media code for the drive, returns the following error in DVD Identifier 5.0.1:
[09:15:20] Waiting For Drive To Initialize Disc…
[09:15:49] ERROR : Unable To Initialize Disc In Time : Not ready - Logical unit not ready [02/04/01]
Other software, such as ImgBurn, reports similar errors and refuses to detect the disc.
Any ideas about what the problem is? Is there are hardware failure with the drive that should be dealt with while the warranty is fresh?
