i'm stuck in an endless loop with synchronising cache and it's not the first time. But it happens only one time in many successful write operations. Now i want to go into it and get the reason.
After a little searching the web, i found this topic http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?/topic/1930-problem-after-burn/ from 2006. There's a hint about activating the logs using F8. I did so, and now i get these repeating messages:
I 10:54:56 [0:0:0] TSSTcorp BDDVDW SE-506BB TS00 (E:) (USB)
I 10:54:56 CDB: 00 00 00 00 00 00
I 10:54:56 CDB Interpretation: Test Unit Ready

E 10:54:56 SENSE SK Interpretation: Not Ready
E 10:54:56 SENSE ASC/ASCQ Interpretation: Logical Unit not ready, Long Write in progress
The point is, the "logical unit" - i assume my burning drive - seems to be available for me, as it is constantly blinking from interaction. In the past i always canceled the operation forcefully - mostly without trashing the disc. But it bugs me, what is the reason behind this? Why does this happen?
