[QUOTE=Lemon Juice;2227051]…Conclusion: if you have a drive that refused to work, try cleaning it before you throw it away as there may be some hope![/QUOTE]Glad you got it sorted out. Happy burning.
But, with quite many CD/DVD burners, also many of them being burning plus 1k discs I must be a lucky guy never “cleaned” a single burner sofar.
IMO, the problems caused to above posters and issues corresponding into this type of problems lay in users bad knowledge about how the HW/ SW interact with each other. I’ve had Alcohol and Deamon Tools and other apps alike installed causing all kind of issues. making other apps complaining abou problems like; hiding drive, hiding media, aso.
Nowdays I’m a happy Linux user (and have been for quite some time) and I don’t even care about this issues. All my burners are up and running without any need of “cleaning”, less ever been cleaned.
But then, I might just be a happy guy living in a clean PC World…
