    Hi all,

    I really need some help here. This has been the case for months and I have no idea what is wrong.

    I have a Toshiba SD-R5002 with 1031 firmware.

    I am using Windows XP SP1 with an Asus A7V8X system board. I have my SD-R5002 on the secondary onboard IDE channel.

    Here is my problem -

    I can burn DVD-R, CD-R, and CD-RW with out fail always. No problems at all.

    However, when I try to use DVD-RW everything goes to hell. I have used Memorex, Verbatim, Princo, Optodisc, and TDK DVD-RW media.

    Whenever I try to erase the media with Nero, EZCD 6, InstantCD, or Alcohol 120% (ignore TOC) I get an error. With Nero the error is "logical unit not ready".

    I try to format using full erase. Sometimes it will get to 10% or sometimes to 50% but with out fail before it finishes I get "logical unit not ready" all of a sudden.

    SOMETIMES it will format with quick format. However, then when I try to burn a DVD-RW in the middle of the burn the error again!

    Can anyone tell me what's wrong here?? This is REALLY annoying. I am TOTALLY unable to use DVD-RW.

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance.

    More info -

    hmmm...this is a tough 1...best thing u can do is call the place or call toshiba about the problem..if that gets you no ware, try uninstalling the burner and re-installing. I had a buddy that had a phillips dvd burner and was getting a similar problem. But he returned it and bought a pioneer, and no problems...try prassi primo program...might work...and another thing...make sure you only have 1 dvd burning program installed at a time, they are known to conflict with each other. Sorry I couldnt be more help...good luck
