After spending the entire last week comming up with the perfect image for a rescue CD, cdrecord told me this:
status: 0x2 (CHECK CONDITION)
Sense Bytes: F0 00 04 00 03 8B EA 13 00 00 00 00 44 88 00 00
Sense Key: 0x4 Hardware Error, Segment 0
Sense Code: 0x44 Qual 0x88 (internal target failure) [No matching qualifier] Fru 0x0
Sense flags: Blk 232426 (valid)
While there's plenty of info there, the key words seem to be "internal target failure". Research on google tells me that indeed, this error is caused by an "internal target failure".
Does anybody know what exactly an internal target is or why it would fail?
P.S. This 300 points is for telling me what the problem is. 300 more if you can tell me how to fix this without a trip to MircoCenter.
