My name is Tony, I'm new here and having problems with my burner.
I have an I/O Magic IDVD16DD, which I understand, is just a rebadge of one of several different manufacurers. First off, how do I determine whose burner this actually is.
I've always had the absolute worst luck with burners since the begining of time. I think god has something against my ability to burn my own movies and software. I've updated the firmware according to I/O Magic's instructions by going to www.drvupdate.com and running the auto-install utility. After I updated the firmware and restart so I can run the firmware again to make sure that the firm worked and that I don't need to install another one, I get a message saying that the burner that I have is not compatible with that software even though I just used it like, 5 secs ago. :a
I've updated ASPI on adaptecs site, amde sure I'm running the newest legit version of Nero, and nothing. BUT; when I switch my computer over to Windows 2003 (I have like, 10 OS's on this thing) burner works fine. I'd use W2k3 primarily if I didn't have to explain the motives for going to certain websites or telling it why I have to restart when I install some type of software that needs me to.
Bottom line, how can I get this piece of crap to work in Windows XP? And how do I identify who the manufacturer of my burner is so I can download the firmware update directly from them? Thanks ahead of time!
