Well, I just received this drive a few days ago and I immediately updated to the latest firmware.
I've finally gotten around to burning my first DVD. I burned an .ISO image using Alcohol 120% onto a DVD-R (the sample disc that comes in the box for the burner).
Now it appeared to have burned successfully. I ejected the disc and re-inserted it.
After Windows tried to read the disc, it said something about "Drive I/O Problems". It kept saying that so I rebooted my computer and tried again.
After the reboot it read the disc fine, but its acting very strange. There is a 3.8 GB file on the disc that copies INSTANTLY to my hard drive. It will even let me copy it to a hard drive that DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH FREE SPACE.
Lastly, when my burned DVD-R disc is in the drive, my entire DVDRW drive does not show up in Alcohol 120%. However if I leave my drive empty or insert a blank disc, Alcohol 120% does successfully show my drive.
So, does any of this sound normal? Is there possibly a problem with my new drive? ...or is there a problem with my computer?
Thanks in advance for any help!
