Freezes on writing lead-in in Nero SCSI

Hi, first time poster, long time reader…

If anyone can shed any light on my problem its much appreciated.

I have a TDK CDRW121032 drive

Every time i try to burn a VCD or image file in Nero or Alcohol 120% the drive states its writing the lead-in, and freezes the program.

once cancelled, functionality is restored to the system. I get some type of SCSi error - don’t have full details on me as at work today but can check if necessary.

Windows media player burns CD’s fine direct, so really can’t work out whats happening here! any advice please!
