Some 5 months after i bought a second DVD, (ASUS DRW-1608P3S) and it worked ok,but since long i am having a problem with it and the error is :
“Event 17891 (GB:ZA000000030000002000,status:04002,sense:037303)
OPC or PMA update error”
I have been trying to solve this problem for weeks now but never succeeded.
I also have an older AOPEN DUW1608/ARR DVD writer (3 years old) But it only writes at 0.6 speed (with DVD’s,and a bit faster when writing CD’s.) and regularly with faults.So both drives dont work properly and the problem might be related.
Both writers have “DMA” turned on and i have cleaned both writers with several different cleaners but so far nothing helped.
Both writers can read pre recorded disks like games and music apparently without any problems,(although the A-open writer seems slow)
So far i have used “Philips DVD+r” and " SONY DVD+r" disks for recording.
(The philips blank DVD disks worked ok when i just bought the writers so i dont think the problem is in there)
ANY idea that i can use to try to fix this problem is VERY welcome!
So…,THX in advance!
