I am a newbie here so please be gentle whilst I ask my stupid question!! hehehe. I presume that this may have been answered before so I apologise in advance and hope someone can put me in the right direction.
I have an Imation DVD+R/RW DL drive Internal DVD Burner
I used to be able to burn cd's and copy DVD's, but now it does not.
It plays cd's and dvd's fine through PowerDVD and Win Media Player. I just can't burn anything.
Nero determines the write speed ok, but when it comes to actual burning dvd it stops and I can hear the blank disc whirling and stopping and whirling until after 2 mins it tells me that the burn failed with a drive error.
Once again Nero determines the write speed, but same issue with the actual burning with the whirling and stopping but the error message says drive not ready.
I have tried to unistall and reinstall the dvd drive but to no avail.
I am running WinXP SP2 and have Nero 6 Ultra. I have checked the firmware and it is YSI3, but doing an internet search doesn't give me any options to upgrade. So I don't know what is wrong. All IDE cables and connectors are correctly inserted.
Can anyone help??
