2 weeks ago i bought my NEC 3500 dvd burner. I came home with a smile, installed it and burned several discs without any problem at all (all at 4x don’t need to go any faster).
I think around saturday i was still burning everything fine, i bought like 150 (!!) new discs (Riteks and That’s writes) and the first ones started fine, but suddenly i think it was sunday i wanted to burn some data and the drive started acting weirdish.
It starts fine then it hit’s 2% and then the light goes on and off and on and off, my buffer cache level is fluctuating heavily and my system proces is like 99.9999%, i can barely do anything else (it even disconnects my msn sometimes).
My drive was first in PIO mode, yesterday i changed it to DMA if possible but still no luck, i tried different softwares but all gave me same stalling result.
NOw i don’t know what to do. I think i may go try the drive in another pc and see what happens.
Baddest thing is i’m not someone that has a good habit of keeping the receipts .
Did anyone have or know someone with similar problems or am I again the only one in this world with this?
