[qanda]This thread is about the Sony DRU-720A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I back up some of my movies using ICopyDVDs2, my Sony DVD burner (DRU-720A) and Verbatim digital movie discs. I have been using this combo for over 5 years with few problems. Recently, something has gone wrong. The program and burner read the movie properly, but when I place the blank DVD into the drive it sounds bad and it refuses to recognize it so that I may push the copy button. I uninstalled the burner and then reinstalled it, and it worked. However, I find myself unistalling and reinstalling my damn DVD burner almost every time I try to use it now. I am positive that there is nothing wrong with my burning program or my blank media, so does that mean my DVD burner is slowly dying or is there some type of hardware communication problem. Thank you for your wisdom and time.
