The problem I am having is a strange one, Im not sure whats caused it or how to solve it, but I’m hoping someone has encountered a similar problem or has an idea I can try.
I’ll give you all a little background information, I recently replaced my Samsung dvd burner with 2 drives a Sony DRU-800A (master) and a Sony CRX320E (slave). I was running them both off the same ide channel (which I know isnt the best idea, but Ive had no problems in the past doing this with other drives).
The problem Im having is when I start to burn a cdr in either of the two drives, the buffer sits on empty and I can hear the cd just spinning very slowly, of course when I finally give up and click to abort, the cd doesn’t respond and I have to force the computer to shutdown.
I originally though this couldve been because I was running both drives off the same ide channel, so I tried each drive individually and also tried the drives seperately on different ide channels and there was no change.
Ive also taken out both drives and reinstalled the old samsung dvd burner I originally replaced but that drive is doing the same thing! (so i know it cant be a problem with the drives themselves).
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!
Software I am running: Windows XP Home + SP2, AVG Anti-virus, Zone Alarm Firewall, Nero 22.214.171.124 and a few games (of course).
Hardware im running: Pentium 4 3.4ghz (s478), Gigabyte GA8PENXP (Intel 865pe chipset), Radeon X800 Pro, 160gb wd sata hdd, 1GB Ram and the two Sony drives mentioned above.
