Recent burn failures with 716A

vbimport

#1

Hi All,

I’ve been using my 716A for almost 6 months and have burned 100+ discs without failure. Within the last 24 hours, 2 out of 3 burns have failed. One was with a TDK -RW, the other with TDK -R 8X. I’ve burned to both of these dozens of times. I’m using v1.08. Here is my latest failure logfile:

#2

Try the self test with recommended DVD/CD-R media. This will check the mechanism and write/read capability.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the tip. Can you tell me exactly which test this is in Plextools? I just did the “Write Transfer Test” and everything seems OK.

Edit: well maybe this scan doesn’t look so hot?
