Great forum by the way. I just joined
HereÂ´s my problemâ€¦
I have the SH S182 and it has worked fine for about 6 months. Now IÂ´ve put together a new machine (Core 2), but the DVD drive wonÂ´t work properly in this. It stops at 97 % when it formats DVD+RW and just shuts down. IÂ´ve tried ImgBurn and Nero, no difference. When I burn DVD+R the drive shuts down at about the same percentage, and when I verify the disc later it reads multiple bad sectors (I guess the drive shutting down during burning ruined a few dozen sectors:a)
Everything else is just fine: I can read DVD, CD, burn already formatted DVD+/-RW, everything works out fine. I put the drive back in its old home (P4 at 2200 MHZ) and now it wonÂ´t work here anymore either !!
Is this some sort of Hardware malfunction (maybe I damaged the drive when I took it out of the case?) or is there suddenly something wrong with the software (or firmware?)
Many thanks for your thoughts on this!
