|Thanks for the detailed explanation. |
In all honesty I can't really say what went wrong or why it happened. There are a number of possibilities.
A dirty or scratched DVD is possible and you could try washing it in warm water and washing up liquid (working from inner to outer on the underside rather than in circles). Dry thoroughly with kitchen paper and try again. Having said that I would not trust a DVD that has had issues and try to get the data retrieved if it was not already held elsewhere.
The lenses on the drive could be dirty. There are cleaning kits available that use a CD with pads upon which you apply cleaning fluid.
Sometimes drives can be fussy about brands too.
Lastly the CD drive itself could be on the way out. I gradually collected burning issues at one time (having tried all the above ideas with "some" success). After I changed the drive I never looked back.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
