I’m wondering if my 708A drive is crapping out on me. I noticed the buffer level in NERO 188.8.131.52 goes from 10% to 97% and it goes up and down. I’ve never had this happen before, the buffer level has always been at a steady 92% without dropping at all. I’ve burned 2 coasters already using TAIYO YUDEN DVD-R PRINTABLES. :a I’m not happy with wasting good dvd media.
Anyone experience this type of problem before? I wondered if it had anything to do with plextools 2.18 so I downgraded it back to 2.17. I only upgraded to the NERO 184.108.40.206 because of the bitsetting. I had used NERO BURN version 220.127.116.11 from day one and had no problems in burning TAIYO YUDEN discs. Any helpful advice will be greatly appreciated! I checked the purchase date of my 708a drive and it’s November 13, 2003. I’ll have to see if this drive is on it’s way out to that BIG PLEXTOR DRIVE HEAVEN up above! If the drive is dying a slow death I would like a RMA. Or better yet send me a 716a drive as a replacement!
