I have had my machine for 6 months and for the most part have been impressed and satisfied with it.
But since the turn of the year (coincidence?) I have been plagued by a DVD writing problem with my Liteon 5005.
It is happy with VCDs but the TDK DVD+Rs I had been using fine up to now are not being accepted.
I have switched it off, unplugged it even… all to no avail.
I have now bought some new blanks to try it out… Sony and TDK ones from HMV … Sony ones same problem. Just sits there with the ‘preparing’ message up.
Is it possible that the write laser has packed up?
I have not hacked the machine.
Is a duff batch of TDK discs?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
