Not sure if this is a odd question or not, but need some help?
Recently bought a Duplicator (with Acard 2056S controller) with 8 sony 5280S drives in them black colour(2nd hand).
They work and then dont work or I get burn errors. I know they all work as they open and and shut on boot up and manual open/close etc.
I am guessing the unit was about 2 years old as I updated the latest firmware for the controller card from 2012 to 2014!
So controller card upto date and I opened the machine and reconnected everything (just checking).
I am assuming that all the sonys need firmware updating or flashing (must be original versions from build date).
Can anyone advice, what best to do?
Will I need to take all the drives out, one by one and hook them up to my PC and then......
On boot up check drivers from my PC and do a normal PC driver check or I do one of these new flashes to get them up to date.
Grateful for any help as nice drives and using them to burn dual-layer discs for work (hence buying the machine)!
So far, out of the 7 drives, I am only using 3 at the moment as the others will do a full burn one day and then not the next!
Could it be the blanks dvd I am using?
In normal PC burns - 1 out of couple 100s will dies with img!
So discs are good quality
So any help/advise please
