Hi folks, I’ve got me a very strange problem; I’ve bought a set of 3 DVD on EBay with technical drawings as TIF and PDF files. As you can imagine thats quite a lot of files. Now the strange thing is that some of the files won’t open. Hovering with the cursor over such a file will block everything. Light on both DVD reader/burner (NEC ND-3540A) and PC are both burning and the program - MS Picture Manager, the default Windows viewer or Adobe reader - does no longer respond. Touching the eject button on the player frees everything again.
Tried the DVD’s on a PC at work; complete PC froze solid. Another PC at work could read a number of files, but also froze after a number of pages in a PDF file. This all happened under XP. Yesterday my son’s new PC was delivered, with Vista and also this PC froze even without reading a single file.
The guy from which I bought the DVD’s has already sended me a new set, but that seems to have the same faults.
Could it be an issue of burning with an English XP version and reading with a Dutch version?
Any advise is more than welcome
