    Hi,

    Would there be any reason that a DVD-R drive would all of a sudden refuse to write to a certain brand of disc?

    I ask because I've been using a certain brand with no problems, and halfway down the spindle I now get errors relating to not being able to burn on the disc IE: bad media.

    I've used like 3 spindles of the same brand now and just started getting these errors. It's not that the discs in the spindle are bad, because I went out and bought a brand new one and am still getting the errors.

    I have a Pioneer A05 drive if that matters.

    How old is the drive ? -- Approx. how many disks have you burned with it ? Is it recognized in your burning software ? Can it burn a Simulation ?

    It is about 1 and a half years old.

    Not really sure how many discs I've burned with it, but I'd guesstimate at least 400.

    It is recognized by Nero.

    It can't burn a simulation. I get the internal target failure error again.

    Mmmmmmm , smells like a sick drive to Me ! I may be wrong. May be worth it to first of all uninstall Nero and re-install it ! And if that dont put back things in order -- try the drive in another PC.

    A good cleaning of the laser inside may also help.
    Edited for typo.
