can read DVD, but no longer writes DVD
SOLVED: or at least decided that it's the hardware, and must be changed.
I've had this system for a few years, and burned dozen of DVDs on it. Now all of a sudden, it will not even recognize that it has a blank disk in it, much less write to it. It still can read a DVD, and has no trouble reading and writing CDs. I thought it might be a problem with a new distro that I put on it (mint13), but I went back to mint 11 and mint 10 (which I still have on the same computer). but it acts the same way there. This same drive worked fine with both of those distributions before.
