Ok here's my specs:
XP Pro SP1 with all current Updates
BTC (Magicspin) 1008, updated to Firmware ...........055
Ripped using DVDStripper and DVD shrink.
Memorex 4x DVD+r RICOHJPN-R01-002
Number on Disc: D1109A51918R
With the above specs, I was burning cheap media from Comp USA with no coasters. I switch to some Memorex 4x DVD+R from OM and Nero fails to get past 20-25% completion. It will completely freeze, the HD light and the Light on the Burner will stay lit, also the BTC Drive is completely unresponsive after forcing Nero to close. I have to restart the computer to get the Drive to open again. Device Manager isn't showing a problem either.
I couldn't find anything on the forums about the newest firmware having issues with this media, but I know it was a popular sell a couple week ago. Anyone have a solution or some suggestions? Is it just this media?
