Nero prob or burner prob?



first things first in my pc i have a nec 3520 burner and a liteon 1653s i have had the pc for around 1 month from pc world and i have a prob burning dvds.

originaly i kept getting a no seek complete error in nero so i thought it was the ide cable so i change it and was still getting the same error so i thought i would try different media so i tried tdx, traxdata, ritek, datasafe , datawrite and lots more but still had the same problem so i thought i would swap the burner to nec 3520.

its taking around 1.30 minutes to burn just the lead in on most dvdrs ? im using ritek g04 and g05 dvdrs at the moe and all are saying 100% complete but when I try to play them in a dvd player they skip and pause and judder etc… very poor copys?

When I put a disk in any of these dirves I have got, the drive sounds like its going to take off it speeds ups making a right fast noise then just seems to stop?
I know both of these drives work fine in my old pc I cant understand why they wont work in this one ?

I have a my old pc upstairs that I am giving to the girlfriends sister that burns all these dvds fine ? that’s got a pioneer 107 burner and liteon rom ?

now i have the 3520 i am getting the same problems i have tried burning at a slower speed and tried lots of media and even updated the firmware, but still not solved the problem i happens to around 50 % of dvds i burn if not more!

but if i use the 3520 to read the dvd and the liteon 1653s to burn the dvds it seems to alittle better?

if you require anymore info please let me know


Are you Running XP…Are the DMA Enabled…Have you DISSABLED the IMAPI in Services…With each SP2/3 update, microrubbish Re-Enables IMAPI to Manuall…Check n DISSABLE…That NEC will use Any DVD-Rs to Burn…
