Ok here’s the problem:
I was writing a couple of Datatrack (Plasmon) cdr’s at 48x, everything was going fine until something went wrong. All of a sudden the drive apparently stopped writing, the disc was still spinning, then it would spin down and spin up again for like 15 minutes. My PC locked up completely. I then restarted my comp, threw away my faulty cdr (which couldn’t be read anymore), and went ahead writing another cdr at 48x. But now not any cd can be written, it starts with writing the lead in and then it spins up and spins down, spins up spins down…etc. (at any speed, even 2x) I tried simulation and then it gives an error: “write error at 00:04.36 (code 030C00)”. I tried Lite-on support but I couldn’t find anything and since contacting Lite-on is virtually impossible I thought I’d ask you guys. Does anybody know this error and does anybody know a solution? Or does it just mean my drive is broke (after two weeks).
