This is too wierd. Did the 1.01 firmware upgrade, and every time I try to burn a CD I get an write error (same brand as I was using before). I tried with Alcohol, Nero, and CDRWin, same result. I reflashed, deleted the drive from device manager and rebooted. Burned CD again, yet another failed burn. Then I burned a DVD, burned at 8X in Nero without any trouble and verified perfectly. Any ideas?
Edit - tried a different media and it works. Guess the 1.01 firmware makes it incompatible with some CDR media, very odd.
