I’ve recently purchased an external Samsung DVD x18 writer with lightscribe capabilities.
my first try burning a dvd-r on it was a major crash as I was doing it on my bed, the drive wasn’t perfectly balanced like it would be on a table and so I started hearing REALLY loud screaching noisesto the point of scaring me enough to stop the process. the dvd-r had scratches on it as I looked at it.
I discard the dvd-r and tried again on a balanced surface but this time as I was gently picking it up and moving it with the most gentle care the noises started to kick in again and the dvd-r was scratched.
I’ve noticed that the only way this dvd writer works is if you keep it still and not touch it at all.
now I know I wasn’t suppoed to touch it to begin with when there’s already a spining cd in it, but still, I’m a little concerend with the sensitivity of it and how gentle it has to be handled when used.
is that something common or should I worry about it and return the drive?
Thanks in advance ,
