BTC 1008IM Fail at 70-80% please help

My 1008IM has suddenly started hanning my machine at anything between 70 - 80 % burn progress. I tried it with CloneDVD and Nero. I’ve tried Verbatim DVD-R, Princo DVD-R and Ridata DVD-RW and it does the same thing almost everytime.

I also tried the latest firmware and it made no difference

Any ideas?

Check if DMA is enabled.

It is using ULTRA DMA 4 - Ultra 66 at the moment.

Check your software environment - drivers, especially IDE drivers, and any other software which may stress your IDE bus beyond capacity, including other burning/reauthoring software and virtual CD/DVD drives.

Chipset-specific IDE drivers are known to be a potential cause for serious conflicts, so if I were you, I’d revert to standard M$ IDE drivers and take it from there.
