Dvd burning fails! pls suggest measures

hi all!!
i keep on gettin problems while burning a dvd+r. i owned a lg gsa-h42n in the beginning and when i try to burn dvd it always fails at 1%. i changed the drive thrice and after that also kept gettin the same problem. so i changed the brand to samsung sh-s182f and even now im getting the same problem…im too fed up :sad:
btw i own a samsung combo and im trying to put the new dvd burner in primary slot of IDE…my comp config is good enough. i think the problem might be in IDE cable…is there any way to check an IDE cable.
Pls suggest some ways to solve this problem
thanq in advance :slight_smile:

Welcome to the forums :slight_smile:
Please do not cross post in the forums, read the forum rules. I answered your other post in the Samsung forum.

Best way to check an IDE cable is to replace it. Make sure it is 80 wire (it will have a blue connector at the motherboard). Then follow the link in my signature to make sure DMA is on. It must confirm it as the current transfer mode, not DMA if available.
