Recently I thought my BR burner was going out so I went out and purchased an Asus BW-16D1HT.  I came home and installed it but the same s*** .  So I decided to re install the software, but to no a vale. My computer had been acting up for awhile, I thought something in the registry had been corrupted somehow so I went ahead and re installed the OS. After everything the same thing is still happening. All of the burning software are behaving the same ROXIO Creator Pro 2012, Clone DVD, DVDFab, the copy process works fine on all of them, but then they idle for about 22 mins before the actual writing process begins, and when I cancel the, programs freeze and the media can't be ejected and this goes on forever unless I reboot. What can it possibly be? PLEASE HELP! Oh! BTW the first symptoms were the old burner wouldn't read or play my discs

Did you replace the data cable along with the new optical drive? If you have a spare one you can check this out. Many doesn't contain a new cable, but it's good to replace it when changing drives.


I don't have, nor have I used a Blu-Ray drive, so I can't speak as to how fast it's supposed to tun, however that sounds like a long time.



Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my dilemma, to answer your question; no I didn't change the cable, I think you just might have something there. The optical drive cable is at least 6 yrs old. I'll swap it out first thing, Thanks again Cat.
