MrCrispy Posted September 15, 2022 Share Posted September 15, 2022 Windows 11, Express Burn v11.09, hard boot after install, Plextor PX-B940SA drive with latest 1.08 firmware connected by USB No problems writing: DVD-R, DVD+R, Blue Ray and BR-DL discs with verification on using Roxio NXT 7, NERO, etc in the past. I burned data discs all day yesterday without issues, and a couple of DVD-Rs this morning. Whenever I try and burn an audio disc to CD-R (I have tried three different brands of media) I get the following behavior ***which is also now reproducing itself with Express Burn*** >> tracks 'write' without error according to the software progress bar, but while the blue light blinks, the green light doesnt come on, implying that the laser isnt writing. >> When Express Burn gets to 'Finalizing Disc' dialog progress bar...about 20% of the way through POP the drive ejects, and I get a success message. Results: Disc is empty. Returning the same disc into the drive, another computer drive, or physically inspecting the disc shows no data written (I get the 'what do you want to do with a blank disc when inserted? message in Win11) Anyone know how to troubleshoot this further? I am technically savvy. In 1994 I worked as a QA engineer with the devs who contributed to the Redbook/Orangebook standards and have burned 1000s of discs along the way, and I used to debug SCSI data in/out phases with an analyzer, but alas, tech moves on and I am retired.
