I’m new to this forum so please bear with me.
I have two Pioneer DVD+/-RW drives. One on my laptop I cant remember the type of DVD drive but the laptop is an Acer Travelmate 2200.
The other is in my tower and is a DVR-109.
The other week both were working fine with my home videos I’ve been editing.
The media I have been using is Maxell DVD+RW there hasn’t been a problem up until the past few days where both drive’s don’t write to DVD+Rw.
At first I thought it was bad media so I bought Phillips DVD+RW but no, still the same problem.
I haven’t installed anything new on the computers.
I use Nero 6 on the tower and NTI on the laptop.
I uninstalled Nero, re-installed it without the IN-CD. I have taken out the DVD drive checked connections, I read somewhere about the UDMA and everything seems to be fine. The DVD drive is on IDE 1 as the slave drive to the hard drive. This has never been a problem.
I just dont understand how one day it was fine then all off a sudden not one drive but two pioneer drives dont recognise DVD+RW media.
They read DVD film’s, read CD’s, write CDR’s but not DVD+RW.
On both PC’s they come up with “no media in drive” or “Drive not ready”.
I now this sounds daft but at the moment we are experiencing a lot of hot weather could this be a problem?
Maybe they have gone on strike because they working in hot weather. LOL
I know I’m clutching at straws but I have just finished a holiday film for a friend and now I cant burn it to disc.
I am open to suggestions, anything.
