I have just purchased a gsa-h55n for a friend. When i try writing data to a blank dvd disc it gets to the write leadin stage(i get a green light on the drive) then the green light stops and the computer completely freezes on me.
I have tried updating the firmware to 1.05 with no luck. I have tried different software including nero and imgburn and different writing speeds and have checked DMA which is fine.
It reads and writes cd’s with no problems and reads all dvd’s with no problem.
I’m stumped, any help would be greatly appreciated, failing that i’ll just return it for a replacement.
