Hi, All. Long time lurker first time poster.
I’m having a problem with a NEC 6750A burner.
I have a Alienware laptop that purchase back in April. The burner worked just fine up until early October. Alienware replaced it now the second drive is doing the same thing. The burn seems to go fine using Nero until the end. The progress bar goes to 100%,the used read buffer empties out and the bottom progress bar starts to fill up again and usually goes to completion quickly.
Whats happening now is the progress bar fills slowly and seems to struggle. It gets to around 40-60% then suddenly jumps to completion sometimes when this happens the drive hums loudly before jumping to completion. When this happens I know the disc will probably be unplayable neither of my DVD players or my game consoles will play the disc. Even though I get a successful burn message.
I use Verbatim dual-layer discs that have been really reliable.
When Alienware replace the first drive they suggested it could be the media but I tried DL discs from different packs and the same thing was happening.
Can someone tell me whats going on? Please help!
