Sony DRU-810A fails while burning second layer

My DRU-810A works always fails about halfway through burning a DL disc, seemingly shortly after starting layer 2. No problem burning single layer, no problem playing discs. I've tried two different burning programs, different brands of discs, etc., but it just doesn't want to burn that second layer. Any thoughts?

The Problem Is That You Do Not Have Enough Space In Your Windows Drive.

If You Have Just about 1GB Still May Be Not Enough According To Your ROM

You Should At least Have 4.5GB Free In Your Windows Drive For Disc"s to Perfectly Burn.

I had the same prob. What I did was update the firmware. The latest can be found in Sony's site.

An exclamation point means that there is a problem with the device. Could be as simple as a corrupted driver. Try unistalling the drive from Control Panel>Add/Remove Harware. Reboot; then reinstall drive. Hope this helps.

My SONY DRU-810A DVD Writer doesn't work with TDK DVD+RW Disc

some dvd brands dont work with all dvd writers, so your option is to try another make, if that works ok then it's not a writer fault it is just that the media make is not compatable. if you start to see problems with all makes of disc then the writer laser is faulty and a replacement drive neccasary.

My new DVD-burner keeps ejecting

Try to solve the problem by looking into your PC. What all softwares have you installed? Are you having the problem when you are using some CD/Audio Players ( Does that program crash/hang usually ) ? Only install softwares that you think are useful. It can also be some maicious software. Always update you anti-virus AND anti-spyware. Uninstall all the unwanted softwares. If these dont help solve the problem,... I may help you if you could do the following steps. * When the problem occurs, open Windows Task Manager by pressing Ctrl, Shift, Esc together. * Under processes, note down the names of all the processes along with username and maybe memory usage. * Give all the particlars about your PC and post it to me ( Try "everest" from to prepare a report ). I shall look into the problem and try to help you.
