As a newbie I need your help. I’m in trouble with my DVD-Writer.
Recently I bought a NEC 3540A, after reading the reviews in cdfreaks and elsewhere.
My system configuration is as follows;
P3 - 600 MHz CPU, 512MB SD-RAM,
Win98 SE operating system,
I have Nero 6.3… for burning.
Previously I had an ASUS DVD-ROM drive.
After buying NEC 3540A, I uninstalled the DVD-ROM and
installed this DVD-Writer in its place as Secondary Slave drive. (I set the jumper accordingly.)
Secondary Master drive is a Philips CD-Writer.
Primary Master and Slaves are my two HDD drives.
The problem is that;
If somehow the writer runs out of buffer (i.e. read buffer of Nero and buffer memory of the writer become zero because of some other programs working simultaneously) the writer stops recording and can not resume it again.
I tested this situation with Maxell 2x DVD-RW, BenQ 8x DVD-R and 10x CD-RW media at their rated speed.
All of them gave the same result; the writer could not resume recording after bufer underrun although “buffer underrun” option was active.
(DMA is also active)
Does somebody have any comment on this situation?
Why is it doing this?
Is there anything that I can do to resolve this problem?
Can modified firmware update be a solution? (I made an original firmware update from 1.01 to 1.03, no change)
Shall I give back the writer and claim a new one?
Thanks in advance
