I have had this drive for a few weeks now and I am having little success in getting it to sucessfully write dvds or cdrs. The various problems are as follows:
- About half the dvds fail to burn at all (various burn errors, e.g. “Invalid field in command” - nero error).
- Those that do burn are very slow to be recognised in other DVD writers or ROMS (dvds created on a pioneer writer read fine in these dvd rom drives). Some can’t be read at all but they can be read by the 451S
- Some CDRs fail to burn and at least once the drive has locked up with the write light permantly on red.
- Some CDRs succeed but then fail on verfication (crc errors, e.g. “Read error on CD file” - nero error)
I summary, at least half the writes fail. I am using Nero 6 (i was using 5.5 and upgraded to see if that was the problem) and i am using Ritek dvds and cds but i have also tried LT dvds. I also have DMA enabled.
Any suggestions? Could it be a faulty drive?
