Well, I’ve been having a lot of trouble with 2 DVD burners on a win2k machine.
Here’s the setup:
8GB OLD Seagate system drive (Master on IDE1)
Highpoint RocketRaid 100 RAID card with:
2x Seagate 160GB ATA100 drives, RAID0 (mirroring).
Windows 2000 SP2 (at the time)
a LiteOn SHM-165-P6S or
a NEC/Optiarc AD7170A
I had Nero 220.127.116.11 installed. Everything worked fine, DVD’s burned in under 10 minutes for 4GB. Great.
Machine goes out (its used for surveying on a boat), comes back with the complaint that DVD burning is taking forever. It indeed is. When I try to launch Nero, Smart Start pops up, I click burn Data DVD. Nothing happens for at least 2 minutes, then Nero Express comes up. Burning takes 40 minutes for a 4GB fileset. I’m using media that burns at 16x in my other machine, which has a Lite-on SHW-160P6S, its Ritek G04 media. I made sure that DMA is on for all IDE devices, it is. I reinstalled the RAID drivers.
So, I install SP4 for win2k, uninstall Nero, run the clean tools (both the general-clean, and the registry/driver-clean routines)… Now I reinstall Nero from the CD, and it won’t run at all. Smart Start comes up, you click Burn data DVD, nothing happens. Waited 10 mins, nero.exe is in the task manager, pulling 0% cpu, and like9MB of memory.
Burn reports are doing nothing for me, but I can post them if you want.
