Mitsumi 4804te burning problem

I have and older Mitsumi (4804TE) 4x4x24 burner. Lately it has been failing to burn at 4x speed. Usually burning just stops at the wery beginning. It also burns RW-disc’s 4x with no broblem at all. Why it is failing with R disc’s but not RW?

Any suggestions?
Should I open and clean it?

Try posting that in www.mitsumicdr.com/forums/

Did you try different brands of media?
Tried newer ASPI drivers?

Older?? how old?? is it still in warranty,? What type of media. Try different media, and try it in a different computer if you have one available. It could be that you are just wearing out the burning, God knows I have went through about 8 different burners,
one being a mitsumi(4804te same as yours). Of course I am slighly hellish on the burners I have, they have to be able to burn a LOT of cds!!(my mitsumi burnt 350 in 3months),

I guess I need a industrial strength burner. !!
