Hi,
I am new to this forum. I am also new to DVD world. I tried googling to find out a good DVD±RW for my Compaq Presario R3460US laptop. I tried buying an NEC 3520A from newegg along with a Sabrent IDE to USB2.0 adapter and powered it up. I managed to write 1 CDR at 4x speed. But trying to write with the DVD+R (Philips) and DVD-R (Esa) both failed. Ran CD-Speed and got repetitive, reproducible unknown error… “No additional information available [0000000]”. I am now returning the drive and adapter to Newegg. :frowning:
I request your help in finding a good DVD writer for my laptop which is not too expensive.
Thank you
