Hi, I'm completely new here, and I don't knwo much about burning and the like. A few days ago, I bought a 1650 for my laptop to work as an external burner. I also bought a special case for holding the burner.
I connected the burner to my laptop and it was installed without any ptoblems (USB Cable, Win2k).
I had a few Esperanza DVD+R x8 discs. I burnt a few data discs and later wanted to burn some more.
However, the burner does not want to burn anything. It starts burning, burns the lead in, than does not burn the data and just starts burning lead out.
Later there an error report. Saying nothing in particular.
I tried burning at x2,4 x4, x8 speeds and always a failure.
I flashed it to BCFC, did not help, BCDC does not work either.
What is the problem? Is it faulty?
