PX-716UFL refuses dual layer DVDs

#1

I have the above burner, and it started to refuse dual layer DVDs - both pressed and burned. CDs and single layer DVDs still work good so far
A little while after disc insertion LED blinks in orange twice - IIRC, it means the disc initialization failed. Is this the start of the end of the drive? Anyone had something similar, and possible solution?

Could be the laser on its way out or just dirt on the lens. You could try cleaning the lens:

thx for pointing to that thread, but, unfortunately, cleaning didn’t help, so it seems the laser is dying…
at least, i’ll hav a high quality enclosure when the drive dies :smiley:
