Device Not Ready (unknown (asc: 0x09, ascq: 0x90))

Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

 

So i have a Matshita UJ-240AS drive (ver 1.01)

it's a blu-ray burner (im running windows 7 64bit home, using imgburn 2.5.0.0)

 

 

I purchased 20, 25gb 4x Mitsubishi (verbatim) discs on ebay, from Japan

 

Out of the 20, the 1st disc was read and burnt perfectly @4X

 

all subsequent discs cannot be read by my drive.. you can hear the drive attempt to read the blank discs a couple times and then it just stops (imgburn is telling me that the drive is in the process of becoming ready)

 

after it attempts to read the blank disc i just get the message "Device Not Ready (Unknown (ASC: 0x09, ASCQ: 0x90))" message

 

My Windows 7 disc burning "Burn a Disc" application doesn't even load

 

 

 

at first i thought my drive died, but then i put in a blu-ray movie and it loads the movie, so i thought maybe it just can't read burnable discs anymore for some reason... so i placed a Mitsubish 25gb BD-R (2x) that i had leftover from before in, and sure enough it was read by my drive and imgburn's status is "ready" and the windows 7 "burn a disc" app opened as well.

 

 

 

So... i don't think this is a problem my drive or imgburn (since my windows app didnt load either).. but rather the discs... and the fact that the 1st disc worked fine and the subsequent 19 didn't i'm leaning on the side that i got scammed

 

but i decided to post here to see if maybe you guys could maybe shed some light confirm/deny/counter my suspicions?

 

 

thanks

I assume the drive can still initialise normal dvd-rom / bd-rom discs?

 

yes they can, i tried another blank 25gb bd-r that i had left-over from before and it worked

and tried a retail blu-ray movie and it worked

 

just tried my blank dvd-r/rw/dl and a retail dvds film and they work as well

Keep trying one of the new discs that you say don't work.

 

By that I mean insert, wait for it to finish initialiing the disc and then eject it again (and repeat) if it doesn't do it properly.

 

If/when it (even by fluke!) initialises one of the discs ok, copy + paste all the disc info from the box on the right when you're in Write mode.

 

Do your discs mention anything about LTH (Low to High) on them? That 'cheaper to produce' format might not be supported by your drive... who knows!

Ok thanks i'll give that a try

 

and know i don't think they're LTH, that's what i thought at first but its stamped on the disc that they're 1-4x discs (and mitsubishi doesn't offer a 4X LTH 25gb disc on their website just a 1-2X)

 

i'll keep trying though thanks

omg! i didn't think it would be possible

 

but after ejecting -> inserting around 20-25x it finally initialized

 

why would it be so troublesome??? discs in the past and even the first disc had no problems

 

here's the info i think you were asking for:

im attempting a burn with this disc, so far though it won't go above 2.0x

 

update well throughout the entire burn process it didn't go over 2.0x

 

And even after burning onto the disc, when i ejected and re-inserted the disc the computer won't read it..... -_- i was hoping by some miracle having been burned on it would read the disc flawlessly

Shame you weren't using 2.5.1.0, it provides more info about the disc in that box.

 

I've recently read about a few dodgy sellers for BD discs on ebay. They might be cheaper but if they don't work then it's pointless buying them!

 

How much more do they go for on the legit online retailers?

ah 2.5.1. eh..

 

Well this guy has like 9000 ratings, positive, and ive bought from him before

 

These aren't exactly cheaper, they just come with printable surfaces, they don't sell them like that here in Canada..

They cost $35 for 20 if you were to buy them @ retail in Japan i pay $65 on ebay for 20

In Canada without a printable surface, come with only 2X burn capability they cost $55

(these are the 25gb discs, 50gb discs are a different story they cost around $25 A DISC in Canada but only $4 in Japan and $6 on Ebay)

 

 

 

thanks so much for the assistance btw!

I can't think of anything that would make your drive return those codes and I certainly didn't do anything special in the newer version to work around them!

 

So... it was probably just luck!
