Error Message

Question

Does anybody know why I am getting the error message:

THE DRIVE REPORTED AN ERROR:

SENSE KEY = HARDWARE ERROR

SENSE CODE = 0x3, 0x01

I am getting this message every time I try burning a backup DVD. I never had a problem before and then suddenly it started after successfully burning a DVD and then the exact same burning process was unsuccessfull. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Can you copy CD's or DVD's? It sounds like the problem might be specific to DVD burning. I guess one thing you can start with is to see if there are any firmware updates available for the drive.

Thanks for the advice. I think the problem came down to the media. I am now using Ridata DVD-RW's & Ridata DVD-R's. I haven't had a problem since.

Thanks,

Guy

Yep, media. I never quit being amazed at the various problems that media can cause. Eventually CD media got to the point where you could by garbage and it still worked 99.9% of the time, but DVD burning, no way. Must be the higher capacity of the disc. For HD DVD or Blue Ray, get ready to take out a 2nd mortagage so you can afford only top of the line media.

Generally that means that your drive has a problem. You might want to try some other media, but it really sounds like the drive is not working properly.

I can successfully use Toast's "Copy" succussfully, so I assume the drive is fine. If not, is there a way of testing to find out if it is in fact the drive's fault? I have a new iMac G5 with a Mitshita UJ-846 dual layer burner.

Thanks for any suggestions
