Focus or tracking error

Hi,

This is a very wierd problem. I just bought a MSI DR8-A2, installed it and it will not burn a DVD. It stops after 24% with a focus or tracking error. I can burn CD-R without any problems. DMA is on, for both harddisk and DVD-RW. I was constantly trying to burn the same data on DVD (pictures and mpeg) which will not work (same error message). After a while, I tried burning something else, another part of data (some games). When I do that, I don’t get a focus or tracking error.

I really need to back up my pictures (digital photographs).

See the log below for both types (error and succes).

Does anybody have a clue???

Cheers,
Mark
