Just got my new LITEON out of the pack and installed it.
After this, according to XP no CD/DVD-drives in my PC any more. Fixed, seems to be OK now, both drives back again.
Started to try to burn CDâ€™s:
1st try: NERO: the drive started, the write graph went up to 4% and got stuck and the burner made noise like a dragster pre-start: motor up-down-up-down. I switched PC off…
After restart, I checked the CDR with NERO: it was not touched at all, totally blank!
2nd try: VCDEasy: quite the same as above.
After this, I tried once again with NERO, but this time I left the drive alone with its dragster-behaviour: AFTER 1,5 minutes it really started writing! Incredible! I repeated it with different speeds, always the same: about 1,5 minutes noise prior to start writing.
My question: IS THIS REALLY AS IT SHOULD BE? And if not, does anybody knows why?
