I bought a dvd burner just over 1 year ago and have only used maybe four times.I placed a blank dvd in last night to burn and it said bad disk so I tried four or five others and it still said the same thing.What can I do to correct this problem
It has taken me months to figure out this problem, as I used to have it too! The only solution I have found was to replace the dvd burner inside the unit. This can be technical if you do not know what your doing, but here is a great website to get you started with how-to's.

Re: ilo dvd burner
Pursuing awesome's second line of attack a bit further, double check that the blank DVD you're trying to record is the right format.
I think your machine expects DVD+R (The plus sign is important, DVD-R is something different).
Go online to update the firmware. If that does not work call the company to find out if they want you to ship it to them to correct the problem. There may be a recall on the unit. You do have a firmware problem in most cases. The other problem is that you may have to only use the same disk brand as the unit to get the system to work.

I have ILO dvd ro5/zu Burner walmart cheapy and I read Capacitors for power supply go bad and leak there are 2 (fuhjyyu 2200uf 10volt) also it runs very very hot so I put in an old computer fan to cool it down works great now, problems with clock flashing and humming noise while recording and playing back. It still has a little hum but other than that it works great 3-4 years old over 150 dvd's burned.
The unit is not finishing the start up diagnostic. This could be forseveral reasons. The most common problem with the Ilo04 is power supply. On the power supply board check the two big capacitors to see if they are swollen or leaking. If so then change them and try that.
The laser is either dirty or is starting to go.These lasers in this model usually only last two years.To clean but a commercial disc cleaner philips or Maxell work good in this model.Put a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushes this helps clean laser.I would do this every 15 hours of use .The best way to clean laser is to rub gently with a Qtip soaked in rubbing alcohol but this requires some technical knowledge for you have to open burner.If you attempt this make certain electrical plug is pulled lasers cause nasty burns.
If laser is going you can replace the burner/loader unit,this model uses a 411s or 451s Liteon burner.The 401s and 813s will also work without problem.
