Last night I was burning a DL disc on to Philips 8x DVD+R DL media. It stopped at around 65% and I wasn't able to eject the disc until I rebooted my system.
After reboot, the drive will not read any disc -- blank or valid.
Further, in order to test if it was the drive or OS, I put in a bootable CD and changed the boot order to CDROM from HDD. It did not boot the CD.
So, I suspect the drive is having problems. Is it dead? I bought the drive only 3 days ago (Wednesday), and this is the 4th disc I was burning with it.
