Bad Burner? Need help/advice



Here’s the problem. I have a memorex 48x24x 2448aj burner that won’t burn. I’ve tried different media, different speeds, different software, all with no luck. When I start to record, my system just hangs, and never actually starts recording, and usually I have to restart the computer. Is the burner junk? The drive reads discs fine. I called tech support, but they were useless, and to ship the drive would be a waste of money, cheaper to buy a new one. I was thinking of upgrading the firmware with the lite on firmware, would this make a difference?


Welcome to the forums.
Can you test the burner on another system to see if it’s functional before you start troubleshooting? Depending on your OS you might try installing ans ASPI Layer if the burner proves to be functional.
