Is there any possibility of borrowing a drive and trying that? I could be way
off beam, but every thread I've read about this seems to come back to a
hardware problem. As a matter of interest, how old is the drive? Is it one
of the early generation of DVD drives? Standards were not as adhered to in
the early days - the old business of trying to get an advantage by doing
something non-standard. Anyway, if you can borrow a drive and try that it
would answer the problem, one way or the other.
