3540 Communication Failure In Nero

vbimport

#1

Anyone know why this is happening. I have only had the drive a few days and have not managed to make a single disc yet.
I have flashed the drive twice with LD3540 1.W5 Firmware Package and there is still no change.
I have tried 3 different dvdr’s and a data disc to try and make an audio cd and all failed.
The burning proccess always starts but never finishes and it is always a different percentage when it does fail.
I have pasted the last log from Nero to see if anyone can make any sense of it.
