I bought the LDW-451s five days ago and haven’t been able to successfully burn even ONE DVD. Every attempt at burning a DVD (either regular Data or Video) results in Win2k Pro stack/core dumping with a system restart. I called LITEON tech support and they said it was software related. Here’s the rest of the info on my setup that’s relevant:
AMD Athlon 900Mhz Processor, 256 MB RAM
Windows 2000 Professional
LiteON LDW-451s @ GSB6 firmware level
–> connected to 2nd IDE Master
–> connected with 80p IDE ribbon
burns CD-Rs and CD-RWs fine
–> this is why I’m confused!
every attempt at burning DVD+RW results in
system crash around 1 minute into burn process
–> it usually cites some sort of call exception
–> haven’t tried DVD+R yet (don’t want coasters)
trying to use NERO 126.96.36.199
trying to use DVD X Copy Platinum latest vers
trying to burn DVD+RW at 4X
–> also crashes at 2.4X
7 Gigs HD space free
I really don’t know what else to do. I’ve done numerous searches on various forums but not many people are having hard crashes with ZERO successes. If anyone has ANY ideas or can point me in the right direction, I’d be more than appreciative.
Anyone have any ideas?
