    Hi,
    I have Sony DRU-540A DVD Writer. It used to be fine;)
    :rolleyes: I thought sony is best!
    Suddenly My DVD drive after 12 months stopped reading CDs :)) lol written by itself :mad:
    Huh? or many Cds 8 out of 10 or I had to insert 5-10 times
    But dvd seemed to be ok so I continued using it
    Now I find one little funny thing
    I use Frontech Spindle Professional DVD
    I write the DVD
    I check the DVD by inserting it copying it it is great fine
    I check it after 48 hours
    it is fine
    and after 7 or more days I insert it into drive and some files aren't working though visible. DVD drive just keeps on reading for hours :)))) and gives CRC errors when copying those files
    I insert reinsert and sometimes I get one file back (which was not coming say AVI or MPG or which was giving CRC error in copying) huh? Rarely!!
    IS THAT SONY WRITER or FRONTECH DVD or a child?
    CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME WHAT IS THE PROBLEM
    I want to replace the DVD writer
    would that solve?
    Can I continue to write DVDs? and later read on my new DVD!
    Please do help me :(( :))
    He he he suddenly the disk and dvd drive act on whims
    Thanks
