Hi there all
I'm just having hassles with this Sony drive it's really driving me up the wall!!!!
I've had it for about 7 months now.
Now yesterday I decided to watch some movies which I backed up on DVD+RW when I first got the drive, it doesn't work!!!
Some DVD'z just show that it's blank and some would just make my computer freeze till I eject the disk.
Last night I was writing an image with DVD Decrypter and it said 100%, synchronising cache, then froze, had to reboot the box. Checked the disk and just makes my box freeze again.
Bear in mind that I originally wrote them on this drive and they did work. When I checked these disks on my other box with normal DVD drive, it jams fine.
[So I can say these disks are working and not faulty or summing.]
I even tried writing normal cd'z (verbatim Crystals)and this is what it looks like after burning:

I've marked the sections with a red line. There are suppose to be full 700Mb movies on then. I used Nero as well as RecordNow. it says it burn'd successfully. But when trying to play these disks, it gives some sort of CRC errors or that the media is not recognised. When I burned on my other box/writer, it wrote it clean and working. Can anyone tell me why does it do that? (as shown in the pics)
I've tried reinstalling XP thinking that maybe I've got too much stuff installed thats interfering with the burning ... no luck.
Tried installing the drive on my other box thinking maybe it the box itself ... but still same problem.
The only Media I used:
Verbatim 700Mb CDR Crystal AZO
Any input? Drive faulty? Can it be fixed?
