Study your old FBI cases, agent Mulder.
This could be due to a dirty disc, dirty drive or worse case a disc that has deteriorated. I think your best bet would be to try different drives. I've had this happened to me with all types of discs in the past and found that my old 8X Pioneer drive reads them in 99% of the time. It seems like some of the new faster drives don't know how to slow down and take their time when needed.Fox Mulder said:Okay, I need a little help.
I have this DVD+RW disc that I use to save stuff daily. Work I've done and other things.
Well today I put it in and the disc keeps on spinning and won't stop and I can't get access to the data on the disc.
There's some important data on the disc that I'd like to see again.
What can I do to get the drive to read that disc again?
Ugh, that I didn't know. I thought it was just like those old 3.5 inch floppy disks where you could rewrite them as much as you want. I have been using that particular DVD+RW pretty much daily since I got this computer back in February 2007.HDMe said:And just for good measure... many (if not all) of those rewritable discs have a limit, so if you use the same disc daily... is it possible you have reached its rewritable limit?
What would you use?P Smith said:Flash drives are too slow for video processing.
