Well, Bought my first DvD Writer on friday, GSA-H22L @ BB. I am running a dell 8400 P4 on a Home Edition XP, 512 Ram, previously running just a dvd player in the drive. Installed, 8400 very smoothe (gotta love the IDE easy pull handles), anyhow, I left the IDE cables from the previous drive in and ran it that way. My problems began when I tried to back up some pics, back up failed with numerous errors upon verification. I tried the Nero, sorry system came with Nero express 6. So, I tried the Nero drive test and would not even start came up with a (Logical unit CRC Error). So, I read through some of the previous posts here, and decided to change the IDE cable, that was completed and I hoped for the best. I tried first to do a simple CDR burn, three songs, came up with burn fail still, multiple errors upon verification. I will not even read audio cd's. I am stuck, any help would be appreciated.
P.S., everything was working to specs before drive install, it is a performance machine, or was, I don't see how it could be a power problem, plenty of room room for additions. I also reinstalled software, to no avail. Should I return :a
