Ok, I"m running Windows 2000 Professional with the drive on DMA setting. It's got firmware V2.TD on it.
I've had the drive since November of 2004 and burned about 75 DVD's and about 100 CD's in total.
Never had any issues with it until last night.
Last night I ripped (using DVD shrink) and burned (using Nero) about 4 DVD's. The process was rip, burn, delete files, rip, burn, delete files, rip, burn, delete files, rip burn, delete files.
After the last burn, I popped in DVD #5 and the drive wouldn't read the DVD (these are pressed DVD's, not copies). I put in a CDR (previously copied data) and the drive didn't recognize the disc either.
I rebooted, and the system recognized DVD and CD. I continued to rip, burn, delete files, and then again it happenned, the drive wouldn't recognize any discs that I put in.
Anyone else have a similar problem?
