Hi, hope you can help me with this one. I have a Sony DW-Q120A writer. Some months ago it started giving me verification failures/reading erros when using Nero 8 and InfraRecorder. It manages to burn the cd, no errors up to that point but it fails whilre verifying the compilation. So far i have tried this two softwares, updated IDE/ATA/SATA drivers for my chipset (VIA), and saved two for the ending: flashing to the latest firmware available (which I did, but still the same), and mannually cleaning the lens and drive (wich I did not, yet).
By the way, it also fails to “pick up” the cd/dvd sometimes.
Could it be that it’s just dirty? It’s over a year and a half old, never cleaned before.
