I just got the 3540A yesterday from newegg, isntalled it, burned couple of DVD’s and was amazed at the quality of burns I got. However, something puzzled me about it’s operation. At the beginning of the burn the buffer remained at a steady 97% full, then about a third of the way through, the buffer would empty out to 0% and then fill itself back up to 97%. That would repeat itself several times through the burn. It did not seem to affect the quality of the burn, but I never saw a drive do that unless it had problems getting the information for the hard disk.
Can somebody please calrify what’s happening here?
