I really need some help here. This has been the case for months and I have no idea what is wrong.
I have a Toshiba SD-R5002 with 1031 firmware.
I am using Windows XP SP1 with an Asus A7V8X system board. I have my SD-R5002 on the secondary onboard IDE channel.
Here is my problem -
I can burn DVD-R, CD-R, and CD-RW with out fail always. No problems at all.
However, when I try to use DVD-RW everything goes to hell. I have used Memorex, Verbatim, Princo, Optodisc, and TDK DVD-RW media.
Whenever I try to erase the media with Nero, EZCD 6, InstantCD, or Alcohol 120% (ignore TOC) I get an error. With Nero the error is “logical unit not ready”.
I try to format using full erase. Sometimes it will get to 10% or sometimes to 50% but with out fail before it finishes I get “logical unit not ready” all of a sudden.
SOMETIMES it will format with quick format. However, then when I try to burn a DVD-RW in the middle of the burn the error again!
Can anyone tell me what’s wrong here?? This is REALLY annoying. I am TOTALLY unable to use DVD-RW.
Thanks in advance.
