Hi there,i bought this burner yesterday,and as yet,i havent burned a single dvd yet,i either get a fail message,or it just seems to stick at a various point during burning.
The one time i thought id completed a burn,it failed me right at the very end,could not complete disc at once,that did piss me off.
I can use the burner to rip with DVD decryptor,but cant burn a dvd.
I replaced my old burner with the new one,set it to master.
There was no driver disc or anything,just says its plug and play,when i installed it,and rebooted my PC,it found new hardware.
Although it says its DVDR1640P not 1620K.
Ive tried the burner on its own,didnt work,i put my old one back in,so they were both in,didnt work,i put my old burner back in,works no problem.
Took old one back out put new one in,tried again,didnt work.
My PC is a 2.8Ghz 512mb ram using XP Nero 6 DVD Decryptor
Like i said,i had no probs with old burner which is a Toshiba DVDRW SD-R5112
I went on the Philips website,and downloaded an upgrade,that still didnt work.
When it seems to stick,which it has just done,it was on 13% for 15mins,i cancel the operation,and it still carry on looking like its burning,the LED is red and DVD shows up in blue,it wont let me eject the coaster,i have to turn PC off at the plug socket.
Its making me real mad now,as im really a newbie to this,and theres nothing i can think of to do to fix things,hence why im here.
Can anyone help me please??
I thank anyone who will reply.
Thanks for reading
