I have a DVD Writer Sony 870s. It was working alright earlier, Now (may be after new motherboard) its not writing DVDs correctly. The problem is that after I burn a DVD the DVD surface is not burned consistently, I can see shaded rings, see the attached image for description. enter image description here
