Ok i’ve been lurking around looking for answers before i posted but found none. I bought this drive about a 3 weeks ago and my first burns using fuji 4x dvd+r were great. Then i got a pack of princo 4x dvd-r’s and all hell broke loose. The drive failed burning and reverted back to pio mode and won’t come out of it for anything. I read all the threads on fixing this and have the drive as the only device on the secondary channel as master. I’ve updated my via 4 in 1 drivers as well as my bios and the drives fw to 0256. My motherboard is an asus a7v8x with the KT400 chipset. If anyone has any experience with this hardware combo and could offer some tips that might help i’d appreciate it. I really like the performance of this drive when it actually works properly, just need to get some of the kinks worked out.
oops forgot to mention…OS is xp pro sp1
