DVD burner is acting up
    #3620554 - 01/12/05 10:30 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I have an IOMEGA external 16x DVD burner. I've burned 100's of dvd's on it with no problem. I just bought 100 of these blanks DVD's :

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1122977&Sku=K51-2088

I opened the first spindle, and burned 2 DVD's with no problem at all. Then the next day when I went to put a blank in, the drive will not recognize there's a disk present. I tried a CD-R and it still reads it, but it will no longer recognize DVD-R's... Anyone know what the hell I can do??

:peace:

Try a different brand of -r or +r if its dual format.  If it does the same stuff check for a firmware update.  If still problems get it rma'd or send it back to TD.

The only problem ive had with dvd and cd burners is overheating them.  If you burn many dvds / cdrs in a row it can overheat them.  I didnt realize I was doing this at first and broke a few(they where all the same microadvantage one) and just exchanged em where i work for new ones.  This may only be a problem with cheaper dvd-r burners.  The thing never trashes disks besides if u overheat it it stops working for a while or permantly :smile:.  When they stop working they usually do shit like say drive not ready or disk not in when there is a disk in.  Or they will try to begin to burn a dvd, only write the lead in track and fail.

Thanks man. Sometimes I do burn a bunch in a row. I'll probably just go return it for another one...

Baraka, you were 100% right. I must have burned it up because I exhanged it and now it works fine.

How many can I burn without worrying? Being that you've burned a few up, what's your rule of thumb?

I give it a 10 min break or so if i start burning a lot. I think overheat problems may be brand related. There is no reason for a cd drive to stop working unless the laser gets dirty/out of focus or it overheats.

Another thing is having an open area below or above your cd drive to give it more access to flowing air to cool.
