First off, mciahel, I read through your write-up (‘thank you’) as well as other threads in this forum. I am writing with what I believe to be a new problem(?) for me/us to troubleshoot.
(I’m at work right now, so my info is limited, but as soon as I get home, I’ll be updating this post with screen shots and more details)
Synopsis: Nero 126.96.36.199 is bombing out when trying to finalize a DVD-Video to TY02’s. I initially thought the problem was doing a “on the fly” copy from my Pioneer 112D. So I had it create an image first. Still bombed out at the finalizing. These aren’t full burns either. Only a gig or less.
So I thought that I’d check for a firmware update for the Samsung. Well, there is an update from what I can see at Sumsung’s update site. I done the Winquiry and it shows the drive correctly, but the LiveUpdate for the firmware “can’t find a supported drive”. And I can’t get a manual update to take either because their flasher sees the drive (I think), but can’t find the BIN file which should be in the downloaded exe.
So, after reading through the forums here and doing searches, I’m thinking that there may be a problem with the ICH9R chipset or my BIOS settings. Possibly the burner doesn’t like AHCI mode? However, dropping back to IDE mode negates the available features on my new SATA HDD.
In about two hours I hope to be back with some screen shots so I can show you exactly what I’m talking about. “Pics don’t lie, but my memory may.” The only thing I won’t be able to get are pics of the BIOS, as I don’t have my camera with me.
To be continued…
(I’m gonna have to update my sig…)
