I've got a NEC 3520 that's a couple of weeks old.
Together with the burner, I got 50 eProformance 8x DVD-R's (ProdiscF01).
Everytime I try to burn using this media, the burner hangs during lead-in and I have to hard-reset the computer to be able to eject the disc. This also happens with BestMedia's Platinum 8x DVD-R (Ritek G05).
I've tried different speeds, but always with the same results.
I get no errors using Medianca DVD+R 1-8x (Prodisc R03), which I even was able to burn @ 12x.
I'm using Nero 220.127.116.11 and WinXPproSP2, both Nero's ASPI and Adaptec's, yet none seem to work.
