Blu-ray drive unable to detect media
I am working with an older computer that has a blu-ray writer attached
through a PCI SATA card for making backups.
What's happening is that every now and then it fails to mount the
blu-ray disc. Once this happens, it gets stuck into that mode until I
power down the computer, wait a few seconds then restart it. Simply
rebooting won't fix it, but the power cycling does.
Until it's power cycled, it fails to detect the media in the drive.
I'm looking for a better way of handling this error since the machine is
at a remote location and I don't have remote power-on capability. Is
there some software command that can reset disk controller (the blu-ray
writer is the only thing connected to it)?
