Question about ASUS SDRW-08D1S-U USB 2.0 Slim External DVDRW with Cyberlink Software - White Burner
This in indicative of a dying drive.
I have no idea why but external drives do seem more prone to it.
Additionally if you have recently added any new burning software you may want to un-install it as I have seen that too fix similar issues.
May I suggest you connect it to a different computer first to eliminate your own computer as a suspect.
Make sure you use the leads that came with the drive and not one that just happens to fit as some leads are not always compatible even though they may look the same.
If it is still under warranty you may want to investigate that option.
Hope this gives you enough to get you sorted out as to what to do next.

I am wondering if you running windows 7 with this drive?
There is a known issue with windows 7 thinking this is a egular drive and truely its not. Upon investigation there has been users complining of the same issues but with windows 7. Some have tried using Legacy usb support in there bios and worked and some have tryed firmware and worked.
I do not know what is theissue in your case as you did not list the operating system.
1. Try legacy usb support.
2. Try checking firmware updates for windows 7 if that is what your using with this drive.
You never want to think this is bad until all your ducks ar ein one row. Putting the cart in front of the horse in this cause will end up sending a good drive back.
1. check your operating system
2. Check and see if your bois is on legacy usb support
3. Check firmware upgrades.
Burning software will not cause this because that is the application layer not the driver layer, First we want to make sure that the system is seeing it as a burner then we start the investigation process, Hope this is more of the information you where looking for?
Thanks for using fixya.com
