My drive makes a click click sound

[qanda]This thread is about the Plextor PX-504UF. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]actually its px-504a not uf and it wasnt listed.

after googling and googling i keep getting refered here so i figured let me join

i either have a bad stack of sony blank dvd+r’s or my burner is acting up.
i usually use the cheaper memorex blank dvds but walmart was out of em so i got the more expensive sony dvds.

the drive is having a very hard time recognizing them, as i put the blank dvd in the drive i get a “click,click” sound followed by a rapidily blinking light wich indicates the drive is not ready. (not shown in the blink codes)

i have burned a few succesfully but for the most part the rest of this spindle wont be recognized by the drive.

i have also burned about 10 cds succesfully, it would seem im just having trouble with the dvd part.

i have flashed the firmware before this post as i know that could have been the culprit.

any help and ideas are appreciated, thanx for your time peace!

hey gang ive solved the problem of my drive! i chucked it and bought a new one!
