I've got the MicroAdvantage (BTC 1008 model, FW 54) drive which I bought about 10 days ago. I had no trouble with installation and have burned very successfully using DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink to 2x Ritek DVD+Rs (and to one 2x TDK -R).
However, I've had NO luck burning to 2x +RWs (tried Imation, TDK, and Ridata). I've used Movie Studio 2.5 as well as Nero 18.104.22.168. It gets almost all the way through the burning process and fails while writing the lead out. With Nero it said the error was a "positioning error". I've found nothing on that in any forums or on any web site.
Also, this burner would not write to the two 4x Memorex +Rs, locking the system up after about 22% of the burning was completed.
Any suggestions? Do I need to take this puppy back (I'm afraid Office Max may not take it as I've already sent in for the rebate)?
Thanks for any help.
