Thanks for the reply! That's why this is so puzzling. I have tried everything I can think of. Here is a list of things I have tried.
-I have a MSI K(N Platinum motherboard, 2 GBytes of Corsair DDR2 memory, 2 500GB's of hard drive, Lite-On LH-18A1P186C, and a Sony Dru-120c that are all less than 2 months old.
-I have checked and rechecked driver and firmware updates and all are up to date.
-Uninstalling and reinstalling all software
-Updating all burning Software
-bought new ultra 550watt power supply
-bought new CPU cooler w/ new Arctic Silver thermal grease and have monitored CPU temp. The temp. never has gone over 105F degrees.
-bought new IDE cable
-bought new system mechanic 7 and no errors where reported.
-bought new surge protector
-I'm not overclocking
-I've tried all kinds of Sony, Maxell, Fuji, Memorex DVD-R/DVD+R/DVD-RW/DVD+RW and none burn correctly.
-I've cleaned registry's, spy-ware, virus protection, defragmented drives, etc..
- Installed info log tools but system shuts down before any error is reported.
ANY IDEA'S GOOD OR BAD WOULD BE APPRECIATED!
