I am having some major issues with this (relatively) new SATA drive.
First of all, here are the details:
[li]Windows 2000 SP4[/li][li]Samsung SH-S203B (firmware SB03 - latest available)[/li][li]DVDFab Platinum 126.96.36.199[/li][li]Memorex DVD+R DL (have tried other media; behavior does not change at all)[/li][/ul]The drive will not burn Dual Layer media to save its life!
I continually get “Task_2 failed! Error=112”. This happens with all DL media. Fortunately, this one is not destroying the media…
Here is the log file:

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drive with no change in behavior.
I have tried deleting registry keys both in the hardware uninstall and the software (DVDFab) uninstall and reinstall procedures.
I have tried an older version of DVDFab as well.
I have NOT tried any changes to DVD Region+CSS Free.
Has anyone else had this issue and - by chance - found a solution!?! Any help is very much appreciated!
i had a sh-s203n and it would not burn ridata dvd+r dl 8x, or for that matter verbatim dvd+r 16x, would fail all the time, it would burn on verbatim dvd+r dl 8x, i just got mad and got a mad dog 20x md-20xstfi drive which also is supposed to burn at 16x to dvd+r dl, and it works better, but it will not burn to ridata dvd+r dl 8x either, i think because of the ota(opposite track alignment) constuction of the disk, the only burner that i can use to burn to these disks is the plextor 810sa, it works fine, but it is slower than the mad dog or the samsung, all the drives i have mentioned are sata.
hope you have better luck, thought i would throw in my experience with the samsung problem!!
