OK I for got to mention that all the drives have DMA enabled. My bad. I'm beginning to wonder if this Christmas present could be a piece of crap? I mean I have a Lite-On CDRW that works like a dream. This DVDRW LDW-811S is from Lite-On and I thought it would live up to the job as well as my CDRW. I have noticed that many folks on here are using SOHW models. Have I received a paperweight of a burner?
One note: This DVDRW is installed as a slave since I had a free cable and the existing drive was set as master. I'm wondering if changing the drive to Master could help?
Thanks in advance.
