I’ve had the BW1625 for over a month, and it has generally been burning as promised.
However - very frequently, usually when I use it for different operations, i.e. playing a DVD, then burning with Nero 7, it shuts down my system with a blue screen 'IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" message.
If I play 3 DVDs in a row, no problem.
If I burn 3 DVDs in a row, no problem.
If I play a DVD, then burn a DVD, blue screen.
I’ve never had this problem with my previous drive (LG 4040B), which was also the master drive on my secondary IDE channel.
This blue screen ONLY happens at the start of an operation involving the 1625, so I doubt any other hardware is the problem.
I reinstalled Nero 6, then 126.96.36.199, no difference.
Took out the drive, checked the connectors.
Reverted to a drive image from before the 1625, no difference.
I checked that my BBIA is the latest.
I should also mention that the problem is intermittent: it won’t happen every time. Usually, once out of every 3 operations.
I’m at the end of my rope. Any other suggestions before I declare the drive defective?
Thanks for any help.
