I burn advertising DVDs to give to potential clients interested in our services. Burning used to be hassle free for the most part, but ever since getting a new burner, It would be ht and miss, some times burning properly, other times starting to burn, and ending with error messages saying it couldn't burn. It said I might need ot update drivers (which I did) or the CD may be of wrong format etc etc.

I replaced that burner the other day. Now, it will burn perfectly the first time. THen, when I go to burn another, I'm notified that there is no disc in the drive. It isn't until I restart the computer that it will register ANY disc in the drive.

Can anyone help? Kinda at my wits end.

Thank you in advance.

I wonder if there's anything interesting in event logs – Journeyman Geek Oct 6 '13 at 13:51
Agree with @JourneymanGeek but also, what software are you using? Tried any alternatives? ImgBurn is free and powerful, but burning as a non-admin has its challenges. – AthomSfere Oct 6 '13 at 16:36
I don't think I'm using any special program. It's just the default Burn function I think. I'm not the most computer-savy person hehe. How would I get the event log? – Phrozehn Oct 8 '13 at 18:12
