  1. I'm looking at the WH16NS40 (no real desire for UHD) so good to know you've had luck with one in the same family. And, no -- the Y cable is a standard USB-micro B on one end, and two USB2.0 A-male on the other end.
  2. It's interesting you say not to use 2.x because that was my thinking too -- but the USB plugs provided with the drive both have white tips, not blue. And considering it's got two plugs coming off one cable... I kinda just assumed it was deliberately designed to be 2.x compatible while still ensuring it drew sufficient power by pulling off two ports at once. I'm seriously considering just getting a SATA case-mounted Blu-Ray burner, and replacing the OEM DVD-RAM drive in my tower. Granted, the only BD-R drive in my price range is an LG, same as my slimline USBx2 model (which was a gift, hence the portable form factor)... But based on what you're saying, it sounds like that might not matter if I'm using SATA direct and bypassing USB altogether. Thoughts?
  3. Thanks everyone. Yes I'm using the Y-cord USB that came with the drive, on both computers. So that's not the issue. I also just plugged the drive into two different USB ports on the rear of my Lenovo and still got a failure. Granted, one was a USB 2.0 and the other was a 3.0 ... but I just realized the drive itself uses two 2.0 ports, so in theory, that shouldn't matter... right? Just for good measure, I plugged the drive into the two USB 2.0 ports on the front of the Lenovo, as I'm almost positive they use a different bus off the mobo. (My dogs are being particularly fussy and in my face, so not an idea evening to open the case up). The drive failed on these ports, too. I went to the Device Manager and right-clicked, "Update Drivers" for every single item under Universal Serial Bus controllers; all said the best drivers were already installed. I had Windows Update do a check; nothing new available. And they all look pretty generic, so I'm not sure I'd know what specific hardware manufacturer and model I'd want to search the web for drivers on. I'll also point out that no other USB drives on this computer have been acting up; occasionally I'll have a WiFi drop, but that's an onboard chip, not coming from a USB dongle. I'm at a loss here. At some point this weekend I'll burn a few more copies on the HP, to see if the successful burn was just a fluke. I'm about to bite the bullet and just buy a replacement drive, but I don't want to dunk $$$ if 1) it's not going to resolve the issue, and/or 2) there's some kind of software or firmware fix.
  4. I will try that tomorrow and update the thread. The drive didn't move ports between the time it was working and the time it stopped on the Lenovo, but I suppose it could be that those ports are losing their oomph or something. Thanks!
  5. I've tried probably half a dozen burns on the Lenovo and they all fail at various stages regardless of disc brand. This machine HAS worked in the past. I only did one burn on the HP computer and it worked flawlessly. I'd say 0 for 6 vs. 1 for 1 is a pretty good indicator without pissing money away on discs for continued experimentation, lol. The drive does use two USB ports. They're USB3 on the Lenovo and USB2 on the HP.
  6. Hello... I've tried searching for this topic already, but the several threads DO NOT seem to represent my exact issue. On my 64-bit Lenovo desktop PC, with an LG BP50NB40 slimline Blu-Ray burner, I keep running into failed Blu-Ray burns. I'm using 25GB single-layer discs and burning from an ISO. I started with FlexDisc brand, and then switched to HP -- so I am confident it is not a disc compatibility issue. This can be further confirmed by the fact that I put the same Blu-Ray burner, with the same HP discs, on a 64-bit HP desktop PC, and it burned the same ISO perfectly. Both computers are using the most recent version of ImgBurn (, and both are using Windows 10 Home. What's interesting is on the Lenovo PC, I burned a 4.7GB ISO to an Optimum brand DVD-R perfectly. It's only crashing with Blu-Rays. Here's the most recent crashed log from the Lenovo computer: And here's the successful log from the HP computer: Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure this must be either a firmware or software issue, but I'm not well-versed enough in the intricacies of ImgBurn settings to know what to adjust. Thank you!
