This problem started from day one but has recently picked up substantially. It occurs when I’m burning data to a DVD+R with ImgBurn 2.4.1. When the disc is in the “Finalising Disc” part of the operation it sometimes stalls or doesn’t even begin it at all.
If it stalls at 90% which is what I recorded, then the disc is still readable and the contents can be extracted. If however the “Finalising Disc” operation doesn’t begin at all, the drive just spins its wheels forever and ever, the drive unresponsive, until I shutdown the computer and I’ve just created a coaster. Of the 21 discs I burned 4 times this has happend, 2 were coasters.
It started from day one. It happened once the first week, I thought nothing of it but It happend three times this week already. I bought the drive from Newegg on 4/16 so it can’t be it’s just worn? I’ve re-installed ImgBurn and made sure of the connections but the problem still persists. I see that I’m past the RMA date Newegg puts standard items. I’m guessing I got a bad drive. Whaddaya guys think I should do?
