I dont think this can be a writer specific problem ,but I cannot see where else to post .
I have a multi OS system via HyperOS ,including several installs of windows 7 ,from home basic N to ultimate in 32 and 64 bit , also vista 32bit installation.
I simply cannot burn an mp4 file(or any other) to disk ,it hangs at anything between 80% and 99% but it hangs every time ,I have tried it in every system I have so its not a software conflict as some of them have not yet been updated since fresh install. I have tried around 4 different burning programs including windows own utility .but nothing completes . whatever the program ,it will show failing to respond when close to completion. and the disc continues to spin at fairly high speed but it wont complete .even a restart wont stop the disk spinning ,only a shutdown halts the progress .
both of the writers are SATA , I did notice this problem last year but at the time I had a IDE drive attached too and that worked perfectly .
I would say it must be driver related as only the SATA drives do this ,is this a known issue ,or maybe I have missed some bios setting I need to alter ,Its driving me nuts , I have a large pile of coasters already ,several different makes TDK taio ,etc., so it is not the discs.
Help ,Please ???
