i have Vista SP1, all latest drivers, TS-l632N (latest firmware) dvd burner
Today i have noticed that when i insert a blank DVD, and try to burn (tried powerGo & Nero) the DVD doesnt burn. Heres what happens:
1)Nero speed test was successful (showed HDD transfer speed = 38mb/s)
2)All discs are READABLE (the DVDs that i burned a week ago are readable)
3)When i start burning, the progress bar reaches 5% in 10minutes!!
4)During burning process, The burner light blinks for 2secs, stops blinking for 10sec, again blink for 2sec, again stop. But the blank disk is constantly spinning fast. I waited for 1hr20mins when progress bar eventually reached 99%. But then it said writting session info, when disk stopped, started spinning, stopped etc. this happened for 10mins when i manually ejected the disk. The nero shows buffer level at 98-99%. (A week ago when i burned, the lights were constantly blinking. Not so now. The lights definitely want to say something!!)
5)I tried various DVD brands. Same problem. So the problem is with writer.
6)I have cleaned disk, defragmented also. No virus, trojan is present.
What could be the problem?
