All of a sudden,my Plextor 24/10/40A drive developped 3 behaviours. First: If I insert a CD-RW disk in the drive, the green LED is on for 10 seconds, then blinks 8 times, is off 2 seconds and blinks again 8 times;and this goes on and on. Second: with some discs, the LED goes off immediately and nothing happens.Third: with other discs, all goes well.
All my backups are on CD-RW's. I can't use most of them anymore.
The drive is working perfectly with CD-R's.The trouble comes only with CD-RW's.
I have had this "Plextor 24/10/40A" for 2 years and never had troubles.It happened suddenly.
Also used Nero during those 2 years; no troubles.
I updated the driver with the latest update.
DMA is turned on. IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service is started.
System: Windows Xp Pro. Asus A7V266-E . AMD Athlon XP
If somebody has an answer, it would be welcomed.
