Hi, Searched and didn't find what I was looking for...
I have an HP 300c dvd burner. It has always worked fine and still currently burns dvd's just fine (if i can find a source one it will read). My major problem is that I can't get it to recognize any newer dvd discs. I can put an older dvd, or burned dvd in and it reads it right away. It used to read everything I threw in there and I reformatted my computer now its being ridiculously picky.
It will read varsity blues, ace ventura, predator immediately
The Punisher, Dodgeball, Anchorman it won't read. And probably 14/20 of my roommates collection it won't read.
Is there a software issue that possible here or did this burner bite the dust?
It is set to region 1 so you can eliminate that idea.
It may be an old burner, but it probably has only burned <50 discs in its lifetime and has had relatively little use. Lets here what y'all experts think about it.

As old as the drive is the laser could just be dying a slow death.
yeah I figured...I'm most likely going to buy a new pioneer anyway cause burners are so cheap nowadays but I was hoping I could maybe keep this puppy going for awhile longer
Any other ideas?
yeah its in DMA
Welp I said F-it and went out to walmart and bought a lighton 20x dvd-r for 44 bucks. Backing up a dvd as we speak, we'll see how this baby runs.
