I purchased a LIGHTON 20X Lightscribe compatable DVD Rewriter a few weeks ago.
I had never tried to burn a DVD as I was using rewritables.
2 days ago I had to burn some DVD’s as backup and decided to use normal Ridata DVD+.
However when I inserted them in my PC the PC hung up.
So I had to flip thepower to get the machine back and tried again. Again the same happened.
Then I tried a DVD- and again it happened.
So I did the backupus on DVDRW and they worked.
I took the machine back to the sales people and they swapped it out for a OPTIARC DVD RW AD-7200S (Sorry I should have mentioned it is a SATA drive).
Same happens with this one.
It burns RW and CD’s without a problem but as soon as I slip a DVD (+ or -) in it the PC hangs up.
I have replaced the cables and uninstalled NERO 7. I have installed COPYTODVD and the problem persists.
What can I do?
Who manufactures OPTIARC as I would like to confirmif it is a Lightscribe item
