Error 203 (hardware failure) on iMac G5 UJ-825 DVD+R

Recommended Posts

I have been using Retrospect 6.1.126 with DVD+R media on an iMac G5 with the built-in Panasonic UJ-825 for a while now, but recently I've been unable to complete any backup operation. Late into the first DVD or somewhere into the second DVD, I get this error:

Trouble writing: “1-Backup-2006” (3221225472), error 203 (hardware failure).

Additional error information for device "Panasonic DVD+RW" [0:0],

Sense > f1 00 04 00 1e 87 40 0a 00 2a 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00


(the sense varies from time to time)


I have tried many DVDs from several manufacturers, but to no avail. Burning from the Finder doesn't give me errors. What do you think?
