Hello everybody. I recently build a new computer and am having a problem with my burner. I bought a Samsung SH-S182M to take care of my optical drive needs, seemed like a good choice, a real swiss army dvd burner. Anywho, after burning a few discs everything was ok, however I tried to update the firmware after that. My first atempt at updating the firmware failed, but the second try worked. After trying to burn anything (cd/dvd) after that, the write buffer keeps falling practically to 0 every two seconds. Reverting to the original firmware didn’t remedy this. I don’t know if this is a hardware issue, or not, but i really feel like this is more software related, and i Really don’t feeling like RMA’ing.
Sorry, i’ve gone on a rant, it’s jsut so frustrating having brand new components break on you.
Thanks in advance
