I run win xp home with sp2.
I have a Samsung SH-S182D SB02 that is DVD RAM compliant. It has the latest firmware installed. I am using Panasonic DVD RAM disks. I have used this site before and was able to find a thread that led me to a driver called DVDForm and also to an update for this. I have installed both of these. (Unfortuantly whenever I search the site at the moment I get taken to a blank page otherwise I would try and find that thread again).
I want to install Ubuntu on my computer. I have about 20G of data that I want to backup before doing the install. Some of these are .avi, MP3 and WMA files others are OpenOffice file formats, microsoft reader files etc.
The other day I started to backup some files. The first were some MP3 files, I then tried to copy some .avi files. The total folder size of the .avi files was about 1.1G. During the copying process I had an error message. I stupidly did not write this down, but it was basically requsting that the original disk be put in the drive. I cliked on cancel. The drive stopped running, the copy stopped and the tray would not eject - it was like the whole thing has frozen up - as opposed to just cancelling the copy.
I (eventually) got the tray to eject and then closed it to have another go and again the drive system just froze.
Can anyone please tell me what is going on please?
