Guess I’ll try to do a short summary of my burning history. Got an 812 with US0J and upgraded to US0N before burning. Did my first 7 burns perfectly fine (Lite-On 4xDVD-R and 8xDVD+R that came with it plus a 5 pack of Memorex 2xDVD-R I had laying around). I then bought a 50 pack of Memorex 4x DVD+R (CMC MAGF01 apparantly). I burned 2 of them no problem…all of a sudden I got a few in a row that wouldn’t be recognized by anything so I couldn’t burn to them. Went through the spindle and found that 38 of them couldn’t be recognized, so I e-malied Memorex and apparantly they’re sending me replacements. I then decided to upgrad my burner to an 832s using the VS04 and running it through omnipatch to get all the bells and whistles. To my suprise when I did this the media was all of a sudden recognized. But to my disappointment anytime I try to burn…they seem to coaster around 65% complete. I’ve noticed that the buffer on the drive seems to drop below 50% then just hangs there. I get no errors or anything, just stops burning. Started a burn and went to bed, next day it had been going for 12 hours just stuck at 63%. I then went back to the US0N drivers but the discs are no longer recognized. I currently tried VS08 and it did the same thing at 64% complete. I have tried 3 different movies, so it’s not the files. I gave two of the discs to my friend who was using an 851 and they worked fine for him. I’m going to give the VS08 a shot without running it through omni and see if it has any luck…if not then I guess it’s RMA time. Any suggestions would be great…sorry for the book here.
EDIT: I’m like 99% sure I will RMA the drive tomorrow, but would like to hear back on this anyway to see if it was something I did that can be avoided on my new drive…thanks.
