I was burning a bunch of copies of CD for someone and I have 3 burners. If I used all three it would hang and I couldn’t get one drive to reset and open. I would have to reboot box. After testing I found out I could burn to two at the same time. The key was they had to be on Diffrent IDE channels. Below is my config.
0,0 Liteon CD-RW
0,1 Benq 1665 DVD-RW
1,0 NEC 3540A DVD-RW
If I used the NEC on secondary channel with either of the drives on Channel one no issues. If I used all three or just the two on Channel one. It would hang with Drives running at full speed and would have to release. Anyone know of any issues with nero and this?
