I just bought a NEC 2500A DVD burner today, and have been having some strange problems with it.
System : WinXP, Nero 220.127.116.11
Here are some of them :
When burning a DVD+R it reaches 100%, and when “Used Read Buffer” starts coming down Nero stops responding and hangs up. It also locks the DVD drive, so I can’t open it with any means in Windows other then booting. Tested 3 times. Same result.
When burning a DVD-RW it either does the above, or gives me the Blue Screen of Death that states a strange NTFS related problem. Tested 4 times.
When burning a CD-RW I get a strange Blue Screen of Death that I don’t know what it means.
When burning a CD-R, it finished Okay once, and hanged up the other 2 times(hanged up = the first error)
I suppose you understand that something is pretty wrong.
What do you think it is ?
Bad hardware(IE DVD burner) ?
Bad media(DVD+R is by Fortis, the DVD-RW is by TDK and the CD-RW are SilverLine) ?
Bad software(maybe I should be using Nero for this ? At all ?) ?
Maybe a Windows problem ?
Also, I should note that I never used any drivers. I looked for them, but decided to go without drivers after not finding any.
Thanks in advance for any help provided,
