I think this is the right forum -
I'm running windows 8.1, have not updated or changed anything.
DVD drive just says it's a Slimtype DVD A, and the computer model is an Asus K55A
My dvd burner has recently gotten a mind of its own:
The drive never shows in my computer if it's empty. If I want to burn I HAVE to insert the DVD and let it load BEFORE I open the program to burn, or it won't recognize there's a disc in it.
Sometimes that takes quite a few tries.
And, apparently, last night it decided it's no longer going to burn Audio CDs. I burned one a couple days ago where track #6 takes half a minute to start and has static, and any song after #8 is staticy as hell. And now it will not burn; it runs through the whole cycle and says its burning, but the CD remains empty, even after it 'finalizes' and pops out. I've tried using both Ashampoo and CDBurnerXP and they'll go through the whole cycle, say it was successful, but nothin'.
