SOOO confused. Ok I had just reformatted my HD about a month ago and I put all the stuff that I wanted back on here like games and AIM and just that sort of stuff… So I went about everything like normal how I always do… I went to burn a song and it started giving me trouble and it didnt burn the first trac but it burnt the rest… So then after a few of those it stopped burning completely. As in it would start up and start spinning the cd then it would stop (like 4%) into it and it would spin up again and them stop and spit the cd out and say cannot complete burning process… So i was like wtf is this? So I thought the burner was dead. Went and bought another one and… Same thing ! SO I bought different cds and the same issue. So i used like 3 different programs including WMP and RP and nero and stuff. Same thing. After all that money lol it didnt change anything. I tried different speeds and everything it will just start up and stop start up stop and eject. im clueless onthis one guys.
symptoms of a dying drive. other possibles: DMA enabled ?
Up-to-date motherboard chipset drivers ?
Nah, it’s not a dying drive since he already tried a new one which showed the same problems. deftoner500, it would be helpful if you would let us know the details of your system (hardware, set-up, chipsets, drivers). For instance, are you running an nForce based motherboard? If so, it’s best not to use the nVidia IDE drivers since they can cause a lot of problems. Also, check your DMA setting as Ghosters suggested. Check out this thread on how to do that. Welcome to the forums btw
oops, my mistake. didn’t see that he’d tried another drive
