I just installed this drive under Windows 7 (64bit). Read others have no trouble with it. On my side, the bundled software does not work. I tried NERO 9 (last release) and after an hour of burning process, I get the message that burn process failed (even just at 2x). Talking about a simple DATA disc here, not yet about a real blu-ray video...
After installing bundled software, the program asked to update firmware, which I okayed. Had to unselect the .exe in msconfig though, as it prompted at each and every boot...
Burning under Cyberlink bundled Power2G does nothing : after an hour, process remains at 0%, and the led on the drive never blinked...
Under NERO 9 : get the process going, but at the end, get the message stated above. However, everything seems to be burned on the disc: it's viewable in Explorer; the file count is same as on the HDD folder. The size of burned disc is same as folder on HDD. I could open files on the disc.
Tried 3 BD discs (two Verbatim, one Memorex). Same results every time. Very annoying, as I don't know if my content is 100% reliable. And why do I get such message. Seems to be LTH issue with the drive. Support at LG is like trying to reach a cactus in desert.
I am under the software/hardware blaming each other to be culprit.
Would like to hear from some of you who are using the BH08 - I am on the edge of removing everything (drive and sosftware) and go for complete refund, but want to make sure I did my homeworks.
