ASUS DRW-2014l1t DVD burning problems.

I recently bought a new desktop PC with the ASUS DRW-2014l1t drive. I can write/read CD's perfectly and also read most DVD's.

However, when I tried writing DVD-R's, the burning process took either 5-6 minutes without finalizing the disc resulting in the disc being read as 'blank' or up to half an hour with finalizing the disc. In this case the disc could be read on both my new desktop and laptop.

A friend and myself tested my drive on his PC succesfully with both DVD-R's and DVD+R's. But upon returning home, I was unable to read the DVD+R which was written during the test.

I've tried to write a DVD+R again while finalizing it. It took again up to 5-6 minutes but it is registered as 'blank'.

Good to know is that my OS is Windows XP Professional SP2, just like my laptop. The drivers for Asus are from Microsoft version 5.1.2535.0 and date back from 1/07/2001.
My friend's desktop has Windows Vista Premium as OS and his driver version - also from Microsoft - dates from 2007.

Could the olders drivers (2001) be related to my problems? I have already tried to search for drivers, but without luck.

It's the disk not the drive.

Re: ASUS DRW-2014l1t DVD burning problems.

I have the same drive. Initially I was having trouble using CloneDVD, and it wouldn't recognize dual layered verbatim DVD's. I fixed the problem by switching over to my Nero 8 Suite Recode software. Then it worked perfectly every time. A basic Nero 7 disc writing software was included with the drive in the retail version I bought. Although this drive will write at speeds up to 20X I prefer not to go over 12-16X on single layered discs. Even with a fast system, you get the best video quality by burning at slightly slower speeds.

try a reinstallation of your burning software if this fails to solve it , its most likely the burning laser diode has blown ( theres a burning ( writing diode ) and reading diode ) , theres no repair if thats the case
