I collect recordings of live music and have several hundred CD-Rs with data on them. I bought this drive to back up these discs to DVD to save on space, but I am getting a lot of coasters. I went through a 25-pack of TDK DVD-R and only got 15 to work. I just bought a 100-pack of Fuji (Ritek G03)and have ruined 3 of the first 4. Here is what I have tried:
- Changed transfer mode to DMA.
- Defragged hard drive.
- Flashed firmware to version 1.07.
- Installed Nero updates.
I use Nero to burn. I set it to verify data after the burn, and it comes up with several errors.
I am running Windows XP. Drive is set as master. System is a Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 1GB of memory, so I know that shouldn’t be the problem.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
