  1. Try with a Linux LiveCD.
    If it works fine, then it's a Windows problem.
  2. Hanging should be just momentary.
    If more than that you may have a problem.
    Test the memory with memtest86+.
    Tell us about your power supply.
  3. my power supply is POWER LOGIC ATRIX 500 500watts
  4. i also had this problem..During our burning with SONY DRU-870s (sata) make me frustrated with over 14DVD Blank copy fail to burn..

    If i use max speed writing in 16x make my computer become better hangs and at the last it was failure. I try 8x speed, but my computer also hang and done our burning at 40minute in 4.4GB size onto disk. That is so long time if compare using another drive device.
