It was suggested that I ask this question in a new thread.
The drive was purchased from Frys and is a Dw1650 as the topic says. This is a pasted of already asked and answered questions. Once I know where the errors come from I can either return or fix my computer Thanks in advance!!!
Is your drive connected to the ide controller on your motherboard or are you using a pci controller card?
It's connected to the MB, its a Tyan K8We Server MB I run dual opti 250s. The ONLY slightly unusal thing is that besides the 2 IDE channels there is an AMDeide 8111 controller the other dvd/cd rom drives work fine. I have the Benq alone and as a Master drive Windows says everything is fine. When I use Nero speed cd/dvd it finds the drive JUST peachy actually.
What brand of dvd media are you using? I have been using Verbatim x16 -R Mid is MCC 03RG20
I will have to ponder, I am fairly computer literate and have checked ALL the simply stuff out. I am TOTALLY mystified how it can start out burning nice and give me a failed burn with a SCSI error of all things...
