    All of a sudden I started getting burn errors with my Lite-on. It will burn until about 15-50% and sometimes 70-80% then get a failed burn. I have used DVDFab and Shrink with the same outcome.

    I don't know if it is a bad drive or program. One problem i see is that my secondary burner is stuck in PIO mode. I have tried all the DMA resetters with nothing to show for it. Funny part is that when i had my Sony AW-G170A on the secondary burner spot (It was stuck in PIO mode) it burned fine, be it a bit fast, can't get it to burn under x16.

    How can i check if it is the drive or the program

    Is your firmware up to date? Some older ones can be buggie/not have the right MID for the media your using.
    Have you defragged/cleaned up your pc? Pc's can slow down with junk,malware,bots,viruses,etc.
    Are you doing something else while burnning; It can interfear/kill your burn if video,ram and processor are weak/slow.
    Burn On,

    I don't do anything when burning. The firmware is the newest one. I defrag the HDD often.... Don't know what else to do. I think i will just replace it. My Sony burning at x16 is really annoying. Can't get as good of burns as the Lite-On. Any onther suggestions.

    PS I cant figure out how to get the newest firmware. It is a Emprex/Sony AW-G170A-B2 with FW 1.71. The newest FW is 1.73 from what i found
