Alright, back again. I had posted a thread in the past weeks claiming that my drive wouldn’t burn to Fuji or Memorex DVD+R’s. In reply, I was told both brands are horrible quality. I then ordered Taiyo Yuden 8X DVD+R from Newegg.com and tried using them to burn media to. In my suprise, they too failed. I’ve had this drive for a little over a year and it never gave me an issue until about 2 - 3 months ago. I’ve used Phillips and Maxell DVD+R’s in the past along with some other brands of which i can’t remember. All of which never gave me an issue. Once I bought these Memorex DVD+R’s I started realizing the problem.
After trying the Taiyo Yuden (which are compatible to my drive) I have come to wonder whether or not my drive is bad/dying?
I’ve tried using multiple speeds for each of the brands which all never can seem to start the burning process.
I’ve also attached one of the Log Files when trying to burn with Alcohol 120%.
Please let me know what you all think, I’d greatly appreciate it.
