    Hi I searched high and low before I posted :)

    my 3 year old sony drive will burn no problem and has given me no problems whatsoever til now...

    it won't recognize any DVD, whether commercial or newly made backup...can't rip ANYTHING with DVD Dycrypter...

    it seemed to happen gradually, once in a while at first, but now all the time...it does however, recognize and play CD's in it...

    and again it burns everything PERFECTLY

    I have the latest firmware and all...use Verbatim DVD+R

    Do I just need to get a new one?

    Any suggestions, even though this burner has served me very well I hear it's not that great

    thanks in advance!

    hey bro how are ya, I really can't believe nobody has responded to this!

    Anyways I ordered a lit-on from newegg cuz it was $35.00 shipped and it's supposed to better than the sony anyways...man the prices have come down...

    anyways I've been too busy to install it but if it works perfectly then it's as simple as the DVD reader is wasted in my sony...

    I'll report here and send you a PM when I do it and also I'd appreciate if you let me know what happens on your end
    thanks!
