I recently purchased a LXR-24101A and have burned about 3 data CDs using Nero all with no problems.
Today, I tried to burn some data files onto a CD and for some reason it wouldn’t burn. It stopped halfway and said “burned failure” Immediately, I thought it was a defective blank CD. So I tried another one. This time, it wouldn’t recognize any CDR I use - regardless of whether it is blank or a multisession CD. It doesn’t seem to read any data and it fails to recognize that there’s a CD in the drive. It keeps prompting me to insert a CDR to begin the burn process.
The burner powers up normally, the computer recognizes the external burner and the ejection works when I click on “discard” through Nero. It’s just not reading any media. And it won’t let me attempt the burn process because it keeps prompting me to insert a blank CDR. Oh yeah, before, whenever I inserted a CD inside, (blank or normal CD), a windows screen would pop up
asking what action I wanted to do next…now it doesn’t pop up anymore, like there’s no CD in the drive (even though there is one)
I tried flashing to the latest software. No good. I don’t know what else to do. Please help. I’ve only had this burner for less than 2 weeks. Is it broken?
To recap, the burner worked fine up until today. In the process of burning a data CD, it quit halfway and since then, it has been ejecting any type of CDR I try and it doesn’t recognize any CDs I put in.
