Generic white box P4 system running Windows 2000 SP4 (I know, I know…)
Burner is an ATAPI LG GSA-H10N, JL10 firmware.
Suddenly today the burner won’t recognize blank CDs or blank DVDs, using the same CD-R and DVD-R media I’ve used for awhile (MAM-A archive DVD-Rs, Staples DVD-Rs, Fuji CD-Rs and Sony CD-Rs).
DVD Identifier says:
[20:38:32] Waiting For Drive To Initialize Disc…
[20:38:37] ERROR : Unable To Initialize Disc In Time : Not ready - Medium not present [02/3A/00]
I don’t have another system handy to test the drive in right now,
but are there any possible fixes, or do I just have a dead drive?
It’s only a couple of years old and has burned less than 50 discs.
