I also have a Pioneer external BR burner around here, which I've not even taken out of the box. Might be interesting to get a "third opinion" from that.
So, is Lightning UK off on other projects, or retired now ?
In the meantime, when this comes up again I guess I can just use Burnaware, or something else . . . .
It doesn't work like that and doesn't need to be updated like that.
The issue there is between your drive and the media - assuming it can initialise other media. If it can't, your drive is just plain broken
MakeMKV or Fab. Not yet sure whether it has problems burning certain BR blanks but not those of other manufacturers. One good test is apt to be whether Burnaware or another such program does not run into the same detection / burning issue, with blanks of the same kind. Will update that when I have more to report. As I said, one would think that the mileage on this drive is way too low for the laser to be failing.
Good to hear from you ! What are you working on these days ?
So it should go from something like...
medium not present - tray closed
(You eject the tray)
Medium not present - tray open
(You insert the disc and close the tray)
Medium not present - logical unit is in process of becoming ready
(Drive finishes initialising the disc)
Except it sounds like your drive canít manage that last part and so gives up, simply reporting no disc is present.
Thereís no reason for any software to see it differently - bar dodgy drivers etc messing up your machine as a whole. ImgBurn defaults to SPTI, which is built into windows. No additional drivers are installed.
Besides a few bits for a hobby, Iím not really doing programming anymore. I do still tinker with ImgBurn now and then. Itís probably about time I released a version that could at least identify Windows 10 correctly (purely cosmetic) ! Iím still very active on my own forum, but the optical market get smaller by the day
I did not install it, came as existing equipment in this PC. It looks the same as in the image, except for also showing M-Disc on the tray, along with the Blu-Ray logo. Also obtained negative results using Burnaware. But if I've got this correct, this drive is only capable of reading BR (which is why it was able to rip commercial ones), though not of writing them. That was contrary to my assumptions. So there is nothing faulty with the drive itself. In order to have the full BR facility, I would need to replace the drive with one that also definitely burns BR -- just as I have it in a couple other PCs.
Although the optical market may have shrunk, I still find value in it as a user. Most everything may be going over to streaming for content delivery, but I think people may come to regret not having more options for storage and backup.
