I have Optiarc ad-7170a for few months and for few days I’m experiencing problems burning disks.
Firs it started with dvd-rw. The writing and verification completes successfully but all other drives as well as stand alone dvd player see blank disk. If i put media back into optiarc - it is readable. Only 1 of last ~10-15 tries was successful. Media used - verbatim. If I use the same media in old liteon - everythig is working perfectly.
Also there is a problem with dvd-r media. It is burned successfuly, other drive (old liteon) can read it but stanalone dvd player fails to read the disk. Media also verbatim.
Drive is connected through JMicron controler and used to work normaly for few months.
Am I missing something or these are the signs of failing device?
