I recently bought a drive ASUS DRW-1608P2S, mounted on a computer with following specs:
Motherboard: Soltek 85ERV
Celeron 2,4 GHz, 256 MB RAM
Primary master: HDD WD 80 GB
Secondary Master: ASUS DRW-1608P2S
Secondary slave: TEAC CD-RW W552G
Video: ATI Radeon 9200SE
SO: Windows 2000 SP4
Burning sofware: Nero 188.8.131.52
The drive was used just few times: for writing a DVD (data) and for viewing few movies.
Trying to write a DVD (data), the writing process stops at various percents (28%, 6%, 68%, 55%) whitout error. Apparently, the drive is still writing (when I click on “Cancel” button appers a messagebox warning that canceling burn may render to an unusable disk; also, in Task Manager, Nero appear as “Running”), but the drive’s led is not functioning and also the progress bar from Nero is not moving.
I try to burn on Traxdata DVD-R and TDK+RW.
I updated the firmware from v. 1.22 to v. 1.37 but the problem still remains. The drive is running on UDMA4.
I would appreciate any suggestions! Thanx!
