Aborted/failed burns with 3500A (was: 3500A Issue..please help..)

#1

I just got my NEC 3500 fresh from Newegg and had found a couple big issue…
I backup my data files on my harddrive to some blank 8x TDK media and 3/5 the burn stops at either 50% or 80% in Nero… And Nero won’t let me cancel or do anything… I tried to eject the drive manually and it doesn’t work at all… no LED no anything…I wonder what this problem is…

my setup: IDE1 HD, CDRW, IDE2 DVD Rom, DVD-RW
and I checked and all 4 devices are turn to DMA mode…

Please help… thx in advance

BTW in Nero, where it says “buffer level” is only at 5%, so i’m wondering if that’s the case…
