    Hi, I have an HP Windows 10 laptop that I bought last year. I burn DVD-Rs and BD-Rs quite frequently, both data and video. Anyways, in the past month I all of a sudden started having problems. No matter what software I used or type of authoring, (video DVDs or Blu-rays through Cyberlink Powerdirector and Pinnacle Studio, various iso burners, data discs through Windows own disc burning software), I will often get error messages and end up with an unusable disc. Once in a while it will make a mistake and actually work but most of the time it won't. I thought it may be the external BD-R drive I use most often, but I have the same problem burning DVDs with the laptopslown drive. I also don't think it's the blank media's fault, as I've used various brands which get good reviews, and I've used them for many years with no problems. I did a restore point in case that would help but it didn't. I am just about at the hair-pulling-out stage. Any insights? Thank you!

    In the past using Powerdirector I've gotten "the attempt to burn a disc failed. an unknown error occurred" (0x80004005).
    Today using Window's built in iso burner I got error code 0xC0AA020D.

    My laptop is an HP Pavilion 15-au010wm, a year and a half old, and Windows 10 was preinstalled.

    As the problem exists using both the included Windows burning software and the Cyberlink we may presume it is a problem outside of these softwares.
    What AV is in use, I know our system report says Windows Defender but please confirm that is the ONLY AV installed

    Try burning on clean boot
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows
    FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY please.

    if it is software related that may then prove successful

    If it does then use clean boot troubleshooting to establish the cause.

    I did a clean boot, with no success. BTW, using Imgburn resulted in an error message mentioning: i/o error, Scsi status 0x02, Interpretation: check condition, sk interpretation: hardware error, asc/ascq interpretation: unknown (internal target fai check failure)

    OPC is already unchecked. Just tried two different versions of Pinnacle Studio, both with generic error messages, no codes, and ruined discs. Also tried burning a data DVD with my laptop's internal disc drive, ruined disc again.

    Update:
    I bought a new Blu-ray drive and it works just fine. So apparently both my original Blu-ray drive and my internal DVD drive failed at the same time. It seemed like too much of a coincidence, but apparently that's what happened. Sorry to be a bother. (But I'm glad it is solved.)
