I'm amazed you're still having issues!
I got myself a 112 lastweek and it's been burning fine. Are you sure you've even tested it with ImgBurn?! Do you have a log of the burn?
As I've said in your previous thread, the program isn't locking up, your I/O subsystem is. The second it gets a response back for the command issued, it'll continue with whatever it's doing. It really isn't ImgBurn's problem if it never gets that response - once submitted, it's out of my hands.
Here's a log of one I burnt earlier to add to my 'Drives and Media' forum. There are other burns in there using this same drive with various Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden media. I've not gotten round to testing all the other MID's yet. Even so, it's enough to show the problem isn't a global one.
