I'm currently using roxio easy media creator 8. I've been having trouble copying DVD's. An error message keeps popping up and my blank dvd's are rendered useless whenever I try to copy.

The error message is a follows: {Logical unit communication failure - Hardware error "[04/08/03]}

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

DVD RW media is perfect for experimenting and troubleshooting since it is reusable…

Sounds like the drive is gone. Using Creator Classic see if you can burn anything from there. If you don't have DVD RW's on hand try setting the burn options to Test Only. It will exercise the drive without actually turning on the burning laser.

I'm just a fellow user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may have provided.

It could also be that the drive is beginning to fail on you. Test with different media, and test with another drive if you have access to one.
