Hello, brand new here. I recently installed a SATA Pioneer dvr 215d writer to my old dell dimension 8200, in which I needed to also install a SATA to IDE adapter.
I was able to back up 2 of my movies, then a few days later, I could get every step of the backup to work until the burn, which includes both DVDs and CDs. I tried numerous programs such as Itunes, nero, windows media player and windows explorer (CDs), and nero, dvd decrypter, clonedvd2, dvdfab6 (DVDs), but none worked. It seems to freeze between the lead-in and the actual write for both.
I then did a search online and tried to update my firmware (it is currently 1.13). This also failed, and said something about a kernel failure (forgot exactly what it said). Any help would be appreciated!
