I got a 3500 off NewEgg a week and a half ago, upgraded the firmware to the latest, and ripped some movies. Plays back absolutely fine, however, recording to DVDs is a pain in the rear. I cant get past the lead-in part, wasted many DVDs on this. Upgraded my firmware to 2.17, same thing. I can hear the drive searching back and forth (little ticking back and forth before it spits out).
Been using Nero. It just Fails after 7% or so. Tried Roxio Easy Media Creator and I get another error, “Write Error, Medium Error”
Been using RiData and Legacy discs
Make any sense? anyone know what to do?
