    anybody out there have any answers to the above thread . bought a different brand of cdr still freezing . also tried imgburn also freezing.
    just tried burning same dvd using nero express and video cd .used blank cd-r
    burned ok and played back on dvd player
    still will not burn using dvd-r or dvd+r
  4. RMA your drive. Burners are to work right on after installation. If it doesn't work something is wrong with it. Burning DVD disc is old technology that it should work outright.

    Have you tried different brand DVD+R/-R. Known good brands are recommended over cheap no-name or store-brand.

    When i have new optical drive i test it with Re-writable disc/media. In that way i don't throw away good disc.

    I program video/movie then i play it on standard DVD player. When i program files or data... That disc should be readable on any of my PC.

    set at pata.i tried burning in safe mode and it burned ok. so the burner is working ok must be something in pc or program
  10. good.and after that did you try burning but not in safe mode?
    maybe any virtual drive causes the conflict.in safe mode it wont load its drivers.

    So the device firmware is up to date, it burns only cds and burns dvd's only in safe mode.
    Here are a few questions, is always good to know:

    Are you making a direct copy of a dvd? eg, is it reading from another dvd drive?

    how much RAM do you have installed on your computer?

    What program do you use to burn dvds?
  13. He.I just requested my RMA number for my one.i am sending it back.i cant have that. :fou:
    will try to get my money back and buy from overclockers or anywhere else
