    I am fairly new to this, but I have burned about 50 DVD's without any problems. Now all of a sudden I can't burn a single DVD without an error message half way through:

    Sense: 02 ASC: 3A ASCQ: 00 (Command 00)
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Px.dll: 1.7.46.500
    pxdrv.dll: 1.0.61.2
    PxMas.dll: 1.7.46.500
    PxWave.dll: 1.7.46.500
    PXWMA.dll: 1.0.0.3

    My burner is also making a lot of loud clicking noises that I never heard before. If anyone has any information about this it would help me greatly.

    The burner is about a week old, SONY DW-D18A DVD+/-RW DL. I am using Sonic Record Now Deluxe V. 7.0 with Verbatim DVD+R 8X. The clicking sound just started, and it is also having a hard time even recognizing media when I put it in the drive.

    If thing is only a week old making clicking noises and having a hard time recognizing media I'd take that sucker right back and get a new one. Sounds like a bum drive to me.

    Perchance are you using labels on your burnt DVD?

    If part of a label has dislodged, it could be responsible for your clicking sounds and inability to burn correctly.

    I'm not using labels on the discs, they are fresh from the holder. I will have to get ahold of Sony I guess, I bought this new from newegg.com

    ASC 0x3A, ASCQ 0x00 means 'Medium Not Present'.

    Your drive has probably reset itself because it cant deal with the media you've put in it.

    If ALL discs (writable, burnt, pressed originals) cause clicking noises, your drive is broken.

    Uninstalling the drive through Device Manager might do the trick. Try this:

    Go to Device Manager >

    Expand the tree for DVD/CD ROM Drives >

    Find the drive in question, right click it and go to Properties >

    Under the Driver tab, select Uninstall then OK.

    Now reboot and Windows should detect and reinstall the drive.

    If this doesn't help try the same steps as above except expand the tree for IDE ATA/ATA Controllers and uninstall either the Primary or Secondary controller depending on which one the drive in question is attatched to. Nero Info Tool can tell you which chain the drive is on under the Configuration tab.
