Well I did try to change the booktype, but it wouldnt let me... I have the same issue here, drive is recognized in everything, but wont read or write anything, not even a clean disc. I have re-installed drivers, re-installed Nero, and nothing seems to work, yes 80pin. Set up as Master on Sec. Even changed PSU and cases (cooler master CAC-T05-UB and 650W), it should run cooler now though.
I started having write issue's about a month ago (maybe sooner), for the longest time I was able to burn Ritek (16x) media with this drive, ever since I bought it in Nov of last year, then one day it just wouldnt, coaster after coaster, so I bought (at the suggestion of someone) the TY media and I updated the firmware. At that time I had it stock GL03, and updated to GL0G.
The burns were good, then a few days ago, it threw a burn error while I was backing up files. I have the log files, and the images from booktype and smartburns posted at videohelp.com. link to post
Not sure what to do now, already ordered a new drive as I have dvd orders waiting, nice time for the burner to stop working!
