Hello to this forum!
I am new to DVD burning and have just purchased the OEM Philips DVDR1640 from Ebuyer. The drive is reading fine and I've burnt an Audio CD on a CD R disc. I have some Memorex DVD+R 1x/4x and this is where the problems start! I have searched extensively looking for solutions as to why these discs wont burn, (the process doesn't even start). I have tried Nero, NTI. Ashampoo. I have enabled DMA. I have downloaded every firmware update I can find (including benq) but they all say "Drive not supported" so I haven't been able to update firmware.
I have an Asus A7N8X deluxe motherboard, Athlon 2700, 768DDR Ram, 120gig HD, XP proSP1 OS. I saw a small mention of problems with Nvidia but couldn't see the solution. Does anyone know if there is an issue with this drive and the above motherboard with the firmware updates? I am going to purchase some DVD -R tomorrow but would still like to be able use the ones I already have!
Any help at all greatfully received!
