strange problem with crazy dvd burner
by sectornine - 4/14/06 9:26 PM
i was burning a dvd today, after it's done i edject the disc and then push the disc back into the dvd burner drive as usual, i then checked the disc to see if it can be read, and copy a few things from the cd to my hd, everything works, so i edject the disc for the final time and decided to put in inside my cd case.
as i push the edject button, i noticed it got stuck, before i can do anything, the tray with my disc pops out, but half way through it slots back in, then madly slots back out then in then out then in, you get the picture.
when it finally stops, i quickly grabbed the disc in the tray in hopes that i would be able to get it out before the tray starts going craazy again, my attempt failed; as the tray suddendly retracts back in, i withdraw ny hands but my dvd is stuck along ith the tray, the tray locked my dvd tight, then out of the blue the tray pops back out, unstucking my disc, i grabbed the disc and unstick the 'edject' button on the dvd burner, i then checked the dvd for damage, there's to be none.
i then loads the dvd back into the dvd burner to see if it still can be read, i didn't see any scratches on the dvd, but i just wanted to nake sure the dvd didn't get 'squashed' by the trya and that i wanted to make sure it can still be read, when the dvd burner starts reading my disc, i was horrified.
the dvd burner makes ALOT OF "CLICKING" noises insted, the disc cannot be read, the dvd burner just kept on clicking and clicking and clicking, i edject the dvd and insted loads it at a different dvd-rom drive on my desktop pc, to my surprise, it loads perfectly, i tried loading the disc into the dvd burner, again it just makes a bunch of clicking noises
i was rather mad, the burn was successful, the disc was reading fine, at least until the edject button got stuck and the tray went mad as i was grabbing hold of my dvd, and in the process squash it, but that shouldn't completely rander the dvd useless, so my question is:
-why is my dvd burner not reading the disc after the disc tray "squash" it, i see no phsycal damage, not even a tiny scratched, the brun was complete successfullly in the first place, and after the burn the dvd burner was reading it fine until i push the edject button and things go mad frim there.
-how come my other dvd rom drive was able to read the dvd even though the dvd burner wasn't able to?
my burner and reader:
-lite-on 16x dvd burner (model 1693s)
-lite-on dvd rom
software used to burn the dvd was nero 6 express
please help me, please help, thanks T_T
