Hello,

I have "ASUS DRW 2014S1T ATA" that's not burning disks anymore. Though I didn't use it to bun CDs for a long time, it reads them very well.

I'm having problems now with my HDD so when I tried to create a "System Repair Disk", it kept popping-up an error screen stating "The write failed because the drive returned error information that could not be recovered from (0xC0AA0301)". I also tried burning regular stuff like images and video files and I ended up with failed burning processes.

I uninstalled the drive and reinstalled it but the problem is still there. I installed a third party CD/ DVD burning program (Nero 7) but I still kept getting error screens.

PS: For what it's worth I recently converted to Win7.

It doesn't sound like it's a software problem but more possibly the drive itself has a faulty write laser. Do you have another or access to another drive that you can try in your system to verify if it is the drive or not?
