I am having trouble with DVD writers offlate. I have tried 4 SATA DVD writers (LG 22x dvd write) since Jan 2011 and each one of them failed. It seems the the writer struggles to read the disk. Each one of them worked for atleast a day. I was able to get about 2-3 disks out of them after many tries and many damaged disks. I also noticed that one of the cables from the SATA power connector connected to the writer was disconnected so i replaced that connector. I have had a decent experience with IDE drives which have worked for 6 months per drive writing about a 100 disks each.

How do i troubleshoot this?
