this is my first post here so be kind
I wonder if you guys can help me with this:
my DVD-RW started to not copy everything from inserted media although my DVD-ROM reads the same media fine and also started to fail in some recordings (never failed one before) , it´s less then one year old and i don´t do lots of burns!
My concern is when i send it to the shop (have to pay posts because i bought on-line in a shop in my country but very far way from my town) to make use of the guarantee, the technicians don´t see nothing wrong with the DVD-RW because the errors it make are random, although i am shore that the drive is bad.
So here goes: there is some way i can damage on purpose my drive so i shorly get a new one?
Do you have some ideias?
I really don´t want to send the unit to the shop, pay posts, wait lots of time (meanwhile i my need to burn something) and then receive the same DVD-RW back as happened to me a few years ago with an GPU that i had, in the 1ª RMA fase and only in the 2ª RMA fase the technicians finally agreed with my that the GPU was bad, this after spending lots of money and loosinf my nerves.
I know that today the DVD drives are very cheap but neverdeless right know i am complitly broke for these investments.
I also know what i am doing so please no moralisms.
