Follow on: When I had a problem with the Teac CD-RW drive in my daughters box,
I sent an email to Teac Tech Support, asking if they had Diagnostics
for it. The reply
was that they had no Diagnostics. I put it into the trash and I will
not buy any more
Teac drives, because they have no Diagnostics. If the company has Diagnostics
for your DVD burner, that will probably be able to show you the SN.
