[QUOTE=lord_vivec;1400786]this is around the 5th time this has happened, lost count of how many dvd’s i’ve wasted… dell sux…
anyway what my drive does (its a ND-6650A) when i put in a dvd into the drive is says its a cd, while nero still detects it as a dvd with all that free space that should be there, free. the little auto play POS says that is a blank cd, and after trying to burn it only burns the amount a cd could hold, then the programs freezes, and i have to manually eject the disk and alt-ctl-delete nero to close. i’ve tried uninstalling the drivers, i had starforce on here before, but got rid of that crap (this has happened well before i had starforce) i’ve called dell 3 times and gotten 3 different drives, yet all do the same d@mn thing!
make sure that their is comfortable amount of free space on your hard drive and memory.
be sure that their is no another software accessing your disk drive … like mount trainer support , clone cd , … they might have changed the os’s default cd drive driver to their comfortable one… roll back it…
Please check your drive connector and power supply
check their is any hardware problem… like (bad sectors in hard drive , faulty memory etc …)
